The warehouse structure consists of a 23000 m² warehouse structure with a two-storey office block a concrete roof slab and a warehouse mezzanine floor. The warehouse is clad in pre-cast concrete tilt-up wall panels and steel cladding. Internal columns are provided at 32 m centres with lattice girders spanning in between. The portal consists of trusses centred at 8 m centres, with end spans of 24 m and an internal span of 32 m. Concrete columns were cast to 13.5 m above the finished floor level with steel columns to the roof height. The warehouse floor was cast to FM2 surface regularity.
The challenges faced on this project was the fast-tracked construction programs and working at heights with these tall warehouse structures. The fast-tracked construction program resulted in detailing done within 2 weeks by KRU Detailing to give SE Steel Fabrication the edge in the market.
