PT Subcontractor: BBR Contech
SB Logistics continued expansion in Christchurch has meant the company has outgrown their current premises located by Christchurch Airport. This growth promoted the company to built a new 5000m2 warehouse at a estimated cost of $10 million located at Dakota Park which is a business subdivision at Christchurch Airport.
Conslab Ltd was awarded the floor slab contract and in turn they employed BBR Contech to design and install the specialist post-tensioned floor. The slab was designed for a sub grade to meet a minimum 7% CBR, 900mm x 2800mm back to back racking with 51kN racking post loads on 160mmx160mm baseplates. The 4,875m2 slab was set up with a temporary stopped end and poured over two consecutive days with temporary stop-end between which requires that the full slab area is prepared prior to pouring. This configuration resulted with a central construction joint in compression.
This new warehouse will help SB Logistics to continue their expansion in the logistics arena which has seen significant growth opportunities in recent years.
