BBR Contech is pleased to be associated with the winning project for the Technology and overall Concrete Award at the 2011 New Zealand Concrete Society Awards announced in Rotorua on August 8. We congratulate Conslab Ltd who submitted the award and it is recognition of the technology, expertise and quality of their full-delivery flooring package. The new K-Mart distribution warehouse in Wiri contains a 13,000m2 post-tensioned slab in the warehouse and an 11,000m2 steel fibre reinforced slab externally.
The warehouse floor is constructed to rigorous FM2 criteria of the European racking code EN15620. The floor surface has an excellent gloss, is highly burnished and has excellent abrasion resistance. K-Mart's warehouse operations Manager Kim Craig comments, "The floor is an amazing seamless floor which suits every piece of our machinery, as well as being easy to maintain."
Jointless warehouse floors have been evolving for many years but to the judges, the Conslab Ltd entry for the K-Mart Distribution Warehouse in Wiri, South Auckland represented the ultimate in floor performance.
