Heineken Project BIG is an 18 200m2 extension to their existing warehouse facility in Meyerton, Gauteng.
What impressed Heineken and their Consulting Engineer on this project, was that the Post Tensionedsolution we offered as an alternative to the reinforced design, was that it is a “jointless solution”. This solution is ideal for poor soil conditions. In this situation, we are in dolomite, with potential risk of sink holes. This solution would mitigate the risks of a potential collapse in the event of sink hole forming.
The Main Contractor is Grinaker – LTA (Contracts Manager, Mario Lopes), had tremendous time constraints to complete the project. Essentially, this facility has to be built in 5 months.
