Chatswood Apartments – slabs and shoring
This mixed use commercial development consists of 212 serviced apartments, 3 levels of basement car parking and 2 levels of retail and function rooms amounting to 18,000m2.
The building has been constructed utilising a combination of load bearing precast and framed structure in conjunction with post tensioned slabs. The development will be founded on pad footings to accommodate the load of the tower building, with the tower building creating a prominent face on Archer Street with the precast and glazed facade.
The builder of this 11 story high-rise is Icon Constructions who concentrate on property projects in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. RMD Australia’s client was VISIONARY INVESTMENT GROUP (VIG) who have strong connections to mainland China.
For the higher ground floor with deep beams and sloping soffits, RMD supplied its high strutting Rapidshor shoring system and for the typical slabs from level 2 to 10, RMD’s easy and safe Airodek prop and panel soffit system was used.
