Project Update: Ballitoville

Here is a closer look at a warehouse we built for Shree Property Holdings, for general use. You can head over to their website if you’re interested in letting this property.



The project took a total of 13 weeks from order to completion, which included working through the industry strike. We were requested to keep internal column spacing to a minimum so if you visit this warehouse you will find internals across the 60m span, at every alternate bay so the effective minimum clear area equalled 750m2. 3m tilt up concrete panels and columns were used around the perimeter to expedite the building work.

Project Update: 1360 South Coast Road

This project was a general warehouse built for Henways Transport through Shree Property Holdings

The project was expected to take 12 weeks but took us a mere 8 weeks to complete, despite the massive strike that occurred in the metal and steel industry. We made use of precast concrete (tilt up) walls and a composite steel/concrete detail in the office suspended floor to speed up the process of the building.
