5-Storey Industrial Development at Pioneer
The Givaudan Singapore Pte Ltd. project called for several 50-metre long walls to be constructed. Using 18 prefab panels, 4 workers were able to fix the steel reinforcements for each wall in just 9 hours.
This was a significant improvement over the conventional steel fixing method which would have taken 6 workers 3 days to complete.
Technical specifications: 18 panels of 5.2m (H) x 0.35m (W); Total weight: 16.5MT
Productivity using non-prefabricated methods: 11 manhour/MT
Productivity using BRC’s prefabrication solutions: 2.2 manhour/M
Not only did prefabrication help the contractors to save significantly on the manhours required of conventional steel fixing, but they were also able to do away with the hassle of scaffolding due to the rigidity of the panels.
