♦ Removal of Suspended Concrete Slab ♦
The removal of this concrete slab between the 6th and 7th floor in a multi story building in the Perth CBD.
The Building, which was constructed in the late 70s, has Pres-stress cables throughout the floors. Our method needed to take into consideration the effect of removing the concrete around the cables on the structural integrity of the building. Applying strengthening products to the cables, and then removing the slab block by block was the safest method for our client.
Considerations were also taken for the weight of the floorsaw to the slab to ensure that we were keeping everyone safe. No overcutting was allowed, so Ringsaws and coredrills were used to ensure a neat and tidy finish to the new opening.
Take a look at our before and after photos of the area.
