Mosaic Apartments

On the corner of Elizabeth and Manning Clark Crescent, Franklin ACT, Empire Building Group as the Developer and Builder completed the “Mosaic Apartments”. It consists of eight free standing three storey blocks totalling 100 Units with underground car park. The structure, completed with Ultrafloor’s fast and efficient product was completed in just fivemonths with each Ultrafloor level taking 1 day to install.

Ultrafloor supplied and installed over 4500m2 of beams and infill onto load bearing brick and block work for this project. Using one of our newer more efficient beams, the 200R; a slimmer floor zone and larger spacing of the beams was achieved for a faster and more efficient solution.

Due to the flexibility of the Ultrafloor system, the installation was carried out using both a mobile crane and Manitou. The Manitou was used where access was limited.

One challenge that arose during the project was that one of the buildings had to be poured in two sections, half onto a podium slab and the other half on footings, creating the need for Ultrafloor’s engineers to design a cold and slip joint.  

This project was a perfect example as to the speed and flexibility of the Ultrafloor system in achieving a high quality finished structure.
