10 Star - 3 units - 3 floors in 6.5 weeks.

10 Star: 3 x units from footing to 3rd floor plate height in 6.5 weeks.

Only with Formcraft 

A young man had a dream to build a special multi-unit development on a tight battle-axe block in Lathlain WA and went about designing a building of exceptional thermal and strength performance.

The over-riding driver for the project was to have a residence that would achieve 10 star rating. *When 10 star performance rating is achieved, it is deemed that the building will not require any mechanical cooling or heating and therefore be a comfortable living environment; no matter what the external temperatures.

Formcraft was approached to provide technical information at the design stage. FormPro 220 walls were selected which achieves an insulation rating of R3.5 (over 6 times better than conventional double brick walls).

The FormPro and FormDeck systems were selected and Formcraft contracted to supply and install all structural components, including  footings & ground floor slabs. The speed of construction was a critical advantage for the builder who had experienced cost blow-outs in scaffolding and other site hire items on previous sites.

Formcraft with its exceptionally lightweight forms, can start installing wall forms the day after a slab is poured. Concrete curing times do not slow the Formcraft  building process.

Another advantage realised at Lathlain was by using reinforced concrete beams, the engineers required no steel lintels over window openings and some of the upstairs walls were employed as upturned beams, giving the engineers ability to span much larger areas & canter-lever distances without incurring additional structural costs.

Formcraft's building  systems and  products have been independently tested to comply with and exceed all applicable Australian Standards.
