BAMTEC

BAMTEC is utilised in suspended and slab-on-ground applications, continuously reinforced concrete pavements, precast panels, topping slabs and large foundations.

Machine manufactured, BAMTEC is the world’s fastest steel fixing system and a revolutionary approach to placing steel reinforcing. By simply rolling out ‘carpets’ of reo detailed to fit designated areas, installation time is slashed, accuracy is improved, and fewer onsite fixers are required.

CASE STUDY

PROJECT

  • Bunnings Warehouse, Rockdale, Sydney
  • 10,000 m2 floor area
  • 270 mm thick slab
  • 400 tonnes BAMTEC
  • Up to 12-metre carpets1 tonne per carpet

CUSTOMER

AVM Constructions

CHALLENGE

  • Poor ground condition meant that earthworks took a lot longer and the whole project was severely behind schedule

SOLUTION

  • To make up time to deliver the project on time, AVM placed close to 400 tonnes of reinforcement in under a month using BAMTEC with just four steel fixers and a mobile crane
  • It would have taken AVM in excess of three months had they used conventional steel fixing
  • Use of continuous bar chairs aided the speedy rollout of the BAMTEC carpets
  • BAMTEC carpets used different bar diameters at different spacings to match design requirement. Material cost was reduced.
  • Overall cost saving on reinforcement of around 10%

If it was not for BAMTEC, we would not have completed the job on time. It has been a tremendous success for us.
