Clemton Park Village – Rapidshor and Airodek
Situated just 13km from Sydney’s CBD in its sought-after inner west, Clemton Park Village provides an excellent lifestyle. It is close to a diverse range of entertainment attractions, such as: shops – including a Coles Supermarket, schools, employment opportunities and fresh food outlets that are freely available.
Clemton Park Village specifically consists of six apartment buildings, with basement carparks and a Coles Shopping Centre. Rob Novak from RMD Sydney worked with the Formwork Subcontractor on the project.
The Rapidshor shoring system was used for high strutting
RMD’s Rapidshor shoring system was used for high strutting to 6.5m and 9.5m, whilst supporting the safe and easy to use Airodek Deck Beams and Panels soffit system for the floor slabs. In more typical slab areas the more simple Airodek Prop and Panel system was used for floor slabs.
The total floor area created using these two methods was 11,000m2 of Rapidshor and 3,000m2 of Airodek panels with No.2 props.
Happy with the speed and simplicity of the Airodek system
The client was very happy with RMD Australia because of the speed and simplicity of the Airodek system. The builder Parkview was pleased with the Airodek system from a safety point of view, because Airodek Panels have the composite sheets integrated into the aluminium frame, therefore the site was clean and free of the typical timber offcuts laying around on the site.
The Rapidshor system allowed for three different types of cantilevered edge protection
Also the versatility of the Rapidshor system allowed for three different types of cantilevered edge protection that allowed Westform Contractors to continue forming slabs right up to the edge, without the need to form the edge of the slab using additional high strutting shoring or pour the lower slab immediately next to the slab being formed.
