The benefits of HybriDfMA Frame System construction:
Over 1,400 off-site manufactured structural components assembled in just 24 weeks meeting the clients high visual architectural requirements, and off-site manufacture aspirations.
Efficiencies in the design process and final assembled solution obtained by use of PCE’s HybriDfMA approach of using off-site manufactured precast concrete and structural steel components together with onsite insitu reinforced concrete reduced the initial expected total concrete usage for the project by over 850 tonnes.
This provided a significant reduction of over 100 delivery vehicle movements to site during the structure’s assembly phase and minimised the structures embodied carbon content.
