The Flagstone Village Convenience Centre has been a part of the local community for many years. The small centre is now expanding and is set to be transformed with a 3,500m² Woolworths retail store and 21 specialty retailers providing a wide variety of products and services. The centre is positioned to meet the day to day needs of local residents, providing ease of access and shaded on-grade parking.
Peikko’s DELTABEAM® was chosen to provide an accelerated construction time for the client. The use of DELTABEAM® in conjunction with hollowcore and precast columns has significantly reduced the on-site construction time. Project fire rating requirement was 180 minutes and with DELTABEAM® the elimination of additional fire protection was appealing to the builder as it was one less thing that needed to be done post installation. It also provides a significant cost saving from intumescent paint.
The sloping terrain provided challenges for standard in-situ design, so the use of Peikko’s Column Shoes and Anchor Bolts in precast columns were utilised to eliminated the requirement for propping and formwork.
