SB Logistics, Christchurch Airport

Date: March 2014

Client: Christchurch International Airport

Project Manager: Arrow International Ltd

Flooring Subcontractor: Conslab Ltd

PT Subcontractor: BBR Contech

SB Logistics continued expansion in Christchurch has meant the company has outgrown their current premises located by Christchurch Airport. This growth promoted the company to built a new 5000m2  warehouse at a estimated cost of $10 million located at Dakota Park which is a business subdivision at Christchurch Airport.

Conslab Ltd was awarded the floor slab contract and in turn they employed BBR Contech to design and install the specialist post-tensioned floor.  The slab was  designed for a sub grade to meet a minimum 7% CBR, 900mm x 2800mm back to back racking with 51kN racking post loads on 160mmx160mm baseplates.  The 4,875m2 slab was set up with a temporary stopped end and poured over two consecutive days with temporary stop-end between which requires that the full slab area is prepared prior to pouring. This configuration  resulted with a central construction joint in compression.

This new warehouse will  help SB Logistics to continue their expansion in the logistics arena which has seen significant growth opportunities in recent years.
