Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Precast Construction with Double Wall

Start time: 6.00pm AEST. Hear from industry experts about Double Wall precast building systems, commercially used throughout Europe and gaining popularity around the globe.
Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Precast Construction with Double Wall

Due to increasing community and government concern over Coronavirus, Engineers Australia has decided to temporarily suspend all face-to-face events. This includes events which meet our previously imposed attendee limits. We will continue to offer members access to our online events and services such as EAXchange. We are also working hard to deliver more for our members in this area over coming months.

Widely used in commercial construction throughout Europe thanks to its many benefits in engineering, design and construction, Double Wall is a permanent formwork precast building system which enable the creation of monolithic structures. 

This innovative solution enables better engineering design, increases efficiency on site, and reduces construction challenges. Characterised by its reduced weight, Double Wall enables greater savings in installation costs and time while adding monolithic design advantages to the many other construction advantages the Austral Precast whole of structure offer brings. With the many installation advantages, shorter superstructure construction time and monolithic design advantages, Double Wall is a convincing argument.

Double Wall consists of a pair of precast reinforced concrete shells connected by a lattice girder (trusses) fabricated from reinforcement bar, forming a cavity.

Key themes covered:

  • Innovation in Double Wall construction
  • Key Features and Benefits
  • Local and International Case Studies
