  • Floor slabs and beams consist of reinforced concrete 125 mm - 225 mm thick.
  • Insertion of steel support braces beneath floor level.
  • Minimal weight on floor below due to low load bearing capacity.
  • Work undertaken without disruption to adjacent utility pipes.
  • Removal of waste material.
  • Use of zero emission plant and machinery.
  • Limited time frame for completion of work.
  • Operation on-going alongside other works.

Solutions

  • Two electrically powered, remotely operated Brokk demolition robots equipped with jaw-crushing attachments used to pulverise concrete slabs from beneath.
