The Project

This apartment block is an ongoing construction by one of Hilti's customers, located in Bedfordview, suburban Johannesburg. This building is meant to serve an increasing need for accommodation to the local student community.

The Challenge

Shift in Starter bars - Hilti's Jobsite Reference

The contractors had to deal with a difficult situation after their starter bars to be used for column reinforcement shifted.

The steel fixing team was not present when the concrete was being placed and the reinforcement shifted while placing the concrete.
