JTC was appointed for the design and detailing of the PEB structures for a 13 000m2 new Pack line and PRM warehouse at the SAB Rosslyn plant. The most challenging part of this project was to ensure that the new structures tie in with existing buildings. In addition, erection of steel had to be sequenced and executed without influencing existing bottling operations in other pack lines.
This structure was designed to withstand an uniformly distributed load of 1 kPa.
With rafters and columns spaced at 12m centres, instead of the conventional 6 to 8 meters spacing, we reduced the time required to construct foundations.
