Construction of West Perth office utilises Formcraft system

 

Construction work on the three storey commercial building at the corner of Hay and Havelock Streets is incorporating the new  Formcraft system of  wall construction.
The building, being developed by the Castelli Group and under construction by Gavin Construction is located in a prime position to offer high class office space for meeting the increasing demand for office space in the busy West Perth area.
Rather than installing cast or tilt up concrete panels, we’re using Formcraft’s system of placing the paneling onto the  pre-formed footings, then installing reinforcement bars,  followed by pouring the concrete through the cavity between the inner and outer paneling.
Once the concrete has cured, the panels remain in place to form the outer fabric of the walls.
This product was selected as the mode of construction   because it’s a fast and efficient means of construction as well as having a higher level of site work safety.
Furthermore, it offers the key benefit of the formwork being inclusive of permanent thermal insulation properties to achieve the necessary R-value.
The building has a modern aesthetic appeal featuring bright colours and interesting exterior window shutters.  It will undoubtedly be a trend setter in office design in the locality.
Construction work on this 430 sq metre, three storey building began late August and will be finished in October.
Project developers, the Castelli Group, are a highly diverse property, construction and investment organisation specialising in the development, management and construction of commercial, industrial, retail and residential property, along with additional interests in the wine and renewable energy industries.

The wall system also offers a pre-finished panel option with attractive negative detail that negated the need for scaffolding and additional wet trades.  Furthermore, it offers the key benefit of the formwork being inclusive of permanent thermal insulation properties to achieve the necessary R-value.
