Sludge Cake Building
Envelope walls over 4m in height and up to 500mm thick surround this building, with internal walls dividing up chambers that will be used to resist dozers controlling and managing solid waste. These walls were built into an existing slab using a resin anchor system for starter bars, all with HAV management being controlled locally. A high level mezzanine floor was built to house specialist plant within the steel frame. This required 120sqm power floated slab being cast out of sequence to meet delivery dates. Additional resource was brought in to manage this workload on short notice to maintain client confidence.
