Project Details

Project: Slab Strengthening with Carbon Fibre
Client: KPS
Duration: 2 weeks
Scope: Carbon Fibre Strengthening of concrete slabs to allow the installation of a new steel staircase.

Redevelopment of an existing 1970’s building ‘change of use’ from general office space, into a conference and meeting centre. Extensive remodeling of the existing RC slabs to incorporate multi-level staircase and access points.

Key Issues

The proposed design alterations from the new openings significantly increase forces to the adjacent slabs, introducing potential new sagging moments.
