Scope of Works
Post Tension Design
Precast Panel Shop Drawings
Founders Lane comprises of two, six storey towers and a 8-12 storey tower built on shared podium level plus three basement levels under. The building has commercial and retail tenancies at ground level and level 1 of the main tower and 320 residential units in the rest of the levels above. The structure has been designed using prestressed and reinforced concrete flat decks for levels three and above and a prestressed and reinforced concrete banded system for the transfer deck at Level 2, level 1, transfer at podium and basement levels. The structure is supported by concrete columns up to the underside of level 2 and blade walls and precast panels to the outside for the remainder of the levels.
The Project Consisted of around 9000m^2 of precast, Indesco completed the Precast shop drawings and temporary design for this development. Early coordination with tower crane capacities and site restrictions lead to an economical design.
