Reinforcing Architectural Flare
Gallivan Group's intricate steelwork for architectural home
Jun 8, 2021
United Steel were pleased to assist Gallivan Group who were contracted to construct a unique and complex Architectural Home at Tara Iti. Tara-Iti is 90 minutes north of Auckland and is known for both its world-class golf-course and the design of its architectural homes
Structural steel was custom fabricated to create the intricate formwork for the concrete ‘pier.’ Gallivan Group then prefabricated 6.5 tonne of reinforcing, to create a reinforcing pier cage, before transporting to site.
Concrete was then poured on site, creating a structure that would take the load of the building’s beams and transfer this to the ground, while fitting with the architectural flare already present.
United Steel has previously supplied reinforcing steel in this area of NZ, where the soft ground conditions demand our compliant ductile mesh and bar for the buildings’ concrete slabs.
