This project consists of a five storey apartment block (with a total of 10 apartments) constructed primarily using reinforced concrete ComFlor floors, insitu concrete walls and structural steel framing. Interior structural walls are constructed using the AFS formwork system and external walls a predominately precast concrete (non-structural) cladding panels. The top floor is constructed using light timber frame wall framing and trusses. Internal stairs are constructed using Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT). After extension collaboration with the Geotechnical Engineers, the high cost and constructibility issues of reinforced concrete piles were avoided in favour of a shallow rib-raft foundation solution.
