Built in just 16 weeks, this 10-storey carpark in Central Auckland was constructed using SPEEDFLOOR® Suspended Concrete Flooring.
This 10-storey carpark on Commerce Street, constructed by Watts & Hughes for their client Tramco Properties made use of SPEEDFLOOR® Suspended Concrete Flooring. Watts and Hughes are a New Zealand construction company with over 400 finished major projects.
The Auckland central business district site the carpark was constructed on was greatly restrictive, in fact, the car park ramps reach over to the neighbouring property. The size of each floor was also approximately only 450 square metres.
The lightweight nature of the SPEEDFLOOR® Suspended Concrete Flooring combined with structural steel resulted in minimal foundation and a 16-week building program for this 10-storey carpark. The full 10 storeys had to be erected with the SPEEDFLOOR® concrete floors in place before the cantilevered steel trusses supporting the ramp structure could be attached and loaded with the SPEEDFLOOR® Joists to construct the ramp.
The completed car parking building features 162 car parks and a retail area on the ground level. The building owner, Mr Randolf Baxter, is happy that the carpark works efficiently.
