The composite slab comprises profiled steel decking of various shapes that span 3 to 4m between secondary beams. Composite floor slabs are typically 130 mm to 150mm deep in residential buildings, depending on the deck height. The profiled steel decking supports the wet weight of the concrete and construction loading.
Podium decks constructed of pre-cast concrete planks and block and beam floors have proven to be problematic to waterproof successfully. Consideration should be made to applying screeds to adequate falls and drainage discharge points to provide a more uniform floor to accept the selected waterproofing system.
Four and five story buildings on a concrete parking structure require very experienced and dedicated project managers and site supervisors. WNB's personnel are highly skilled and trained in this type of construction. We have been constructing four story on podium decks since 1987.
On roofs of load class 1 podium roof decks , and load classes 2 and 3 trafficked roof decks where a levelling layer or sub-base is installed, or when wheel loaders are being used during installation, it is recommended that a ND TSF-100 Slip and Protection Sheet be installed above the waterproofing system.
Podium Slabs Multi-Family In multifamily residential structures, a concrete Podium Slab typically acts as both a structural floor and as a transfer slab for wood and light gauge steel framed construction above.
Podium Deck Waterproofing - Waterproofing a concrete or similar deck over a non-critical area such as a car park, podium decks are elevated platform decks generally used as infill between buildings and or other structures. The requirement to water proof is to protect the parent substrate allowing for usage of the deck. Roof water proofing is not
Type I podium construction most commonly consists of concrete flat slabs, but steel podiums and to a much lesser degree, wood podiums, also are utilized. Mid-rise construction utilizing wood framing is limited in the building code by general building height, number of stories, and building area.
Northland Concrete and Masonry Ceco Concrete Construction is a professional organization. From the start of the project they give us detailed preliminary estimates to establish budgets and help design the project cost effective. When it comes to forming concrete structures, CECO is my number one choice.
PODIUM DECK WATERPROOFING. In other developments, the buildings underground structure exceeds the footprint of the building above it, forming a roof deck or podium deck . Podium decks are typically constructed of reinforced cast-in-place or precast concrete and have provisions for protection against corrosion and water leakage.
Elevated Slabs and Podium Decks As land prices rise, density becomes increasingly important. A growing trend in Atlanta is the creation of Loft-type projects Atlanta structural concrete. These are two to four story wood frame multi-family buildings on an elevated concrete slab, with parking directly below the elevated slab.
Ceco has the extensive experience and expertise to provide the best possible concrete resources for your proejct team.. This podium deck project required
This design example illustrates the seismic design of a four story wood framed hotel over one story of concrete podium slab which is assigned to Seismic Design Category D. The gravity load framing system consists of wood-frame bearing walls for the upper stories and concrete bearing walls for the lower story.
Often equated to the bones of a building, flat slab concrete systems are the structural system of the building. Through this technical paper, a process for estimating a high-rise flat slab cast in place concrete structures will be presented from the perspective of a General Contractor.
Stresscon Education Experience In multifamily residential structures, a concrete Podium Slab typically acts as both a structural floor and as a transfer slab for wood and light gauge steel framed construction above. Usually these slabs are situated above parking levels and as such require higher fire ratings and reduced sound transmission.
build from a solid concrete foundation One of the fastest growing methods for urban retail and housing construction is podium structures. These allow you to provide secure 1st level or underground support for parking lots or administrative areas below sturdy wooden structures.
In other developments, the buildings underground structure exceeds the footprint of the building above it, forming a roof deck or podium deck . Podium decks are typically constructed of reinforced cast-in-place or precast concrete and have provisions for protection against corrosion and water leakage.
The 12" thick concrete podium deck on which the wood framed residential buildings sit is 3hr rated. We have multiple penetrations through this deck for plumbing pipes etc. which obviously have to be fire stopped to maintain the 3hr rating.
Compared with split slab methods, plaza waterproofing and podium deck waterproofing with Hycrete waterproofing solutions is also simpler and costs less. Omitting the split slab means that there is no need to wait for the first layer of concrete to dry and to potentially be delayed by weather.
Liquid Roofing Technology. Waterproofing of roofs is one of the most important structural requirements of any building. A watertight roof performs a vital function in protecting employees, visitors and physical assets. At Flexcrete, our heritage is based on the development of industry-leading waterproofing technology and in recent years,
Stadium project was framed with 16-inch open web wood joists at 24 inches o.c., with the top chord bearing on modified balloon framed walls and bottom chord bearing on walls at the interior of the units. In a Type V-A building, both the wall and floor are typically 1-hour. rated, says Church.
Podium Structures. Typically, these are comprised of ground level parking with 3-4 levels of conventional residential construction above, deriving their name from the podium that separates the two occupancies. Once again Nitterhouse Concrete Products, Inc. has raised the standard with its use of 16 NiCore Plank to construct the podium.
Podium Deck Waterproofing. Podiums and courtyards which have basement parking or commercial/office space beneath require a very versatile waterproofing system. Betons CONIROOF system can meet these requirements. A fast, flexible crack bridging robust membrane that cures in 30 seconds.
Chapter 10 Concrete Decks 10-1. CHAPTER 10 CONCRETE DECKS 10.1 INTRODUCTION. Bridge decks are an integral part of the bridge structure by providing the direct riding surface for motor vehicles. In addition, bridge decks directly transfer load from the moving traffic to the major load-carrying members.
PODIUM CONSTRUCTION. Veitas and Veitas is analyzing an additional podium design - a precast concrete system, utilizing pre-stressed concrete slabs and precast columns and girders. This approach is currently being considered for a new project experiencing labor relation issues and is also being vetted against a number of additional projects.
Construction process. For a typical ½-inch grade 270 strand, the strand is tensioned to a force of 33,000 pounds. As the tensioning is occurring, the steel is being elongated, and the concrete is being compressed. When the proper tensioning force is reached, the prestressing steel is anchored in place.
The construction of podium decks and buried roofs has been around for some time, but the use of a basement roof structure to extend beyond the building line and under gardens has increased recently.
Designing all-wood podiums. Field modifications of a wood deck away from the beam line are easier to accommodate because it is not necessary to X-ray a concrete slab for rebar and/or post-tensioned strand placement. Additionally, fewer building materials decreases the number of trades on the job and, as a result,
Forms for Decks. Traditionally, 4x4 posts and scaffolding were used to support plywood sheets upon which concrete could be placed. But with contractors always looking for a way to build faster and with higher quality, formwork manufacturers have come up with a variety of systems to increase efficiency and productivity in deck forms.
