Brighton, Victoria AUS (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
Preston Hire, a leading provider of loading platforms, construction props, gantries and form work, announced today their form work was chosen to be used on a Brighton Kindergarten construction project recently. According to Steven Preston, owner of Preston Hire, "This particular builder needed a formwork supplier with experience in suspended slabs and came to us a few weeks ago with a construction drawing of a kindergarten project they were about to commence in Brighton Victoria. We were able to immediately supply him with all he needed."
With formwork capable of supporting up to 70 KN per frame, Preston says his company is known for their flexible modular designs. Says Preston, "This was just one case of our product being just what the customer needed. Our formwork is perfect for supporting commercial or domestic suspended slabs. Using the structural & architectural drawings provided, our in-house Preston Hire formwork specialist estimated the quantities of formwork frames, braces, base jacks and head jacks required to form the suspended slab and provided the client with a detailed written quote for the job."
The construction on the kindergarten got right to work, says Preston. "Upon completion of the Engineering design and within days of placing the order, all the equipment required to form the suspended slab was rigorously inspected, verified ready for hire and delivered to the site. With no time to waste, construction of the suspended slab was immediately commenced. Upon visiting the site only a few days later, to check on how things were going, we were literally amazed to see how much they had formed in just a few short days." And, apparently the construction crew is pleased with the results, as according to Preston, "They have already placed a forward order with us for No 3 Preston Acrow props to back prop the slab when the false work has been stripped from the site. It's a real credit to this builder for wasting no time getting stuck right into the project."
Preston says this Kindergarten project is just one of many projects they've worked on, helping construction companies all over Australia. "We are continuously looking for better ways to improve on-site safety and efficiency. That’s the Preston advantage: economical equipment and service for on-site materials handling & construction systems, which also provide the highest level of service, standards, and safety for development and construction needs. From our innovative Superdecks, Fixed Decks and Custom Decks, our propping solutions, starting with the industry standard Acrow Props, Peri Props through to our Superprops and new 100t Super100 props and our temporary bridges, walkways and overhead protection. We listen to our customers and what they need. That's why we continue to acquire or develop innovative construction equipment that saves precious time and money."
