Dex Warehouse and Office
Expertise Structural design, documentation and construction support
Location Dandenong, VIC
Consisting of a 5000m2 Warehouse and a 400m2 Office, This project allowed Peritas to showcase our extensive experience in the efficient design of industrial buildings.
The soil conditions were typical of the area with reactive clays throughout. Careful management of subsoil moisture allowed our engineers to specify large panels of fibre reinforced ground slabs with armor edging.
The office consisted of a typical steel frame supported on a stiffened raft ground slab.
The cantilever canopy over the roller doors extends an impressive 12m from the side of the building. This is supported off the portal frames which are supported with a single prop column at the centre of the 64m wide warehouse.
