Special Feature: 

The conventional construction method of such sheds had typically been steel structure. Due to e.construct’s extensive experience with long span precast concrete structures, an alternative to the steel was proposed and successfully implemented.


Special Feature of e.construct Service: 
e.construct’s design for this project included several unique features and details that were used for the first time in the industry, mainly: • 52 m Span precast post-tensioned rafters • Post-tensioned connection between foundation and columns • 10.5m Span for purlins at roof • The use of HCS as vertical retaining walls, 5.5m in height
