PROJECT NOTES

The continuous improvement approach at Peritas has continued to pay dividends to our long standing client for this Bunnings Distribution Centre.

30,000m2 of crack free ground slabs with 35x35m armored joints and zero saw cuts was an innovative design devised in conjunction with the steel fibre supplier.

Further to that, joint-less ground slab construction was utilised on the loading dock hardstand to further minimise maintenance at this facility. 15m cantilever canopies to each side of the warehouse provided challenges for wind dynamics design which was accounted for by our experienced engineers.

Bunnings had concerns over the curing method adopted on the slab due to previous experience of line marking deteriorating. We worked with the builder to adopt the traditional method of water curing with hessian.

Bunnings has commented that the slab produced was one of the best slabs that they have seen. Peritas are proud to be a part of another successful Bunnings industrial project.
