Sharpe Engineering Machine Foundation
Sharp Engineering Machine Foundation , Tingalpa
Terazzo was approached initially to consult on this project and provide design and construct budgets for a Sharp Engineering Machine Foundation. Following this, the project was awarded to Terazzo to design and construct the following aspects:
- Geo Technical soil report
- Saw cut, demolition and excavation of existing concrete slab
- REPQ Structural Designs
- Installation of reinforcement and anchor points
- Concrete placement and finishing
What were the challenges?
The machine to be installed weighed 40 tons, therefore consideration to correct load bearing capacity was paramount. Consideration was also required to manage machine vibration.
How did Terazzo solve these challenges?
Upon investigation of how the Sharp Engineering Machine Foundation functioned, it was identified that a vibrational barrier needed to be installed to accommodate lateral movement and vibration of the machine.
