Cobute has worked with Big Ben Construction at Clara Anna Fontein, the exclusive lifestyle estate located close to Durbanville for the construction of a private house. In line with the Architect’s modern design, we supplied our shutters not only to create a sound structure, but also to mimimise the installation time on site. This residential dwelling features an integrated structure with the Cobute precast slab and beams, used to create cantilever slabs at different levels.

Cobute supplied 207 sqm of its precast shutters for slab (H250mm), supported by 248 sqm of flat beams, cast at the factory without the panels. Upstanding beams were also supplied for 40sqm.

 The span varied up to 7m; moreover, special panels were supplied to ease the installation of electrical services.

The slab span varied from 4 to 7m, using multiple ribs bearing on hot deep galvanized steel posts to give a modern look.

This project re-confirmed Cobute’s commitment to structural solutions that can customised to the specifications and needs of specific customers.
