Project Description:

The installation of the machine foundation required for a Bobst 924 cardboard folder/gluer, required saw cutting the existing slab, excavation, steel fixing, formwork, placement and finishing concrete.


Project details

What were the challenges?

We were required to work within the busy operational facility.  Only very small tolerances were allowed and the work had to be precise in order to be fit for future operation of the equipment.

How did Terazzo solve these challenges?         

We reduced impacts to the business with out-of-hours saw cutting.  The existing concrete was cut into squares, which created less rock breaking and reduced the noise considerably.

All stages of work were cross checked with internal Inspection Test Plans (ITPs) tailored by Terazzo specifically to these types of work. Terazzo encouraged the client to sit in on the planning of the ITPs. No concrete was placed within the ITPs being signed by Management.


Project result

The project was successful and the satisfied client immediately booked Terazzo for a future similar project.
