Precast columns speed construction of offices

Melbourne builder-developer CGA Bryson recently selected Rocla® building columns to speed up construction of two multi-level commercial buildings at Mt Waverly.

Rocla Building Products is supplying 84 steel-reinforced concrete columns up to 11.2 metres high with a diameter or 450mm. The precast structural columns have built-in fittings for quick connection to other building elements. A special bolted base connection allows the columns to be erected in a freestanding position. Gaps are left in the columns at required levels to allow the pouring of concrete band beam floors. Rocla® building columns are manufactured from high strength reinforced concrete in a range of diameters and fire ratings, in lengths up to 24 metres.
