  • Our value engineering input at the design stage enabled us to decrease the depth of the floor slab thickness, resulting in an additional floor being constructed in the block, within the original overall height.
  • A double height pre-cast column solution was the main innovation with bolted connection which helped to drive down the programme duration providing savings for both Cidon construction and Client.
