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. • The post-tensioned connection between foundation and columns. • 10.5m span for purlins at the roof. • The use of HCS as vertical retaining walls, 5.5m in height.
