Futurecon did a complete turnkey project which consisted of a new head office & workshop for Form-Scaff. The project was done at Lordsview Industrial Park in Chloorkop, Gauteng. The office is two storeys at 530m² per floor and 1060m² in total. The workshop is 1206m² ground floor with a 397m² first floor mezzanine area and total 1603m². The total project is 2663m² and only took 6 months to complete.

 

The client wanted the building to be occupied as soon as possible, temporary offices were hired for the tenant to use while construction was going on. We offered a turnaround time off less than half of traditional building methodology. In the end we handed over the workshop in just over 5 months & the office in 6 months and includes the snag period.

The building construction consists of

  • Internal walls: LFS with 15mm fire board on both sides. Skimmed and painted
  • External walls: LFS with 15mm fire board on the inside. External cladding with a scratch and smooth plaster finish.
  • Concrete floors: 255mm Voidcon system on concrete columns to first floor slab.
  • Roof & Cladding: 150x50x20x2mm CFLC purlins 1100mm c/c with Safintra 0.5mm Zincal Saflok interlocking roof sheeting & 716m² side cladding

With all the experience Futurecon built up over the course of 18 years we didn’t experience any problems aside from your normal building related issues. This project went exceptionally well from the beginning. The biggest factor is to have a reliable and experienced project manager as well as staff that’s well trained in the LFS industry. We also rely on our sub-contractors that’s been with us for many years now.

The owner, architect, QS firm and tenant are extremely happy with the result.  They commented on the neatness of the building, the speed it was erected, as well as the high class of finishing that was reached. They also enjoyed the fact that the building site during the project was always neat.
