University of Venda residence expansion

CoreSlab was involved right from the outset in the expansion of student residences at the University of Venda by assisting architect, Lemeg Architects, and structural engineer, Thiko Consulting, optimise the use of hollow-core slabs ahead of the construction phases.

A decision to also use hollow-core slabs as part of the foundation work accelerated the construction programme by up to six months.

We supplied just under 10 000t of precast elements, covering a surface area of about 34 000m2, to this project.

Our scope of supply was also later extended to include the precast concrete stairs and fire escapes.
