PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The building is a combination of office space and residential flats build on top of basement parking. (Mixed Development)

PROJECT ETA: 12 Months

AMOUNT OF CEMENT USED: 201 Bags of Ohorongo CEM II B-LL 32.5N for brickwork and plastering. 4088 bags of Ohorongo CEM II A-LL 42.5N for concrete.

RECOMMENDED CONCRETE STRENGTH: 25mpa for columns and slabs and 30mpa for foundations. (Roughly 511 cubes of concrete)

CONCRETE PLACEMENT: Both direct discharge and pump mix. A pump was used on higher levels for slabs.


PROJECT CHALLENGES: Multi-story buildings in itself is a challenge as the time for concrete to reach full strength prevents certain work from progressing which puts a strain on your timeline. Proper Strategic planning is key to completing a multi-story building within the desired timeline.
