MPN Group provided Silky Constructions with full structural engineer consulting and site inspection services, for this 36 unit residential development. Site shoring and excavation works proved challenging, as the geology varied from water-charged sands to very hard sandstone rock.
The remainder of the building progressed using AFS prefabricated walling for much of the load bearing vertical structure; the nominal room-sized spans resulted in a simple and efficient reinforcing layout for the building at each level. Post-tensioned concrete beams transferred the wall layouts from above at ground floor. The street façade was cast as an in-situ system to create an architectural finish.
