 PROJECT SUMMARY – PRECAST ACCESSORIES

SDG takes great pride in providing Precast Accessories to the prestigious Homeland Group residential development situated on Deansgrange Road in Blackrock, Co. Dublin. This expansive project encompassed the construction of 120 apartments, five ground-floor commercial units, a crèche, and a basement car park, signifying a significant addition to the local community. 

 One of the stand out features of this project was the incorporation of over 5,720m² of Architectural Wall Panels, which extensively utilised SDG’s innovative Thermopin Securing Anchor System. This securing anchor system is specially designed using glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) material, serving as a connecting anchor for sandwich walls and core-insulated double walls.

 THE CHALLENGE

This residential development project aimed to achieve exquisite finishes, and the use of the precast architectural wall panel system was key to realising this vision.

 The chosen brick for this project, known as ‘Buff,’ featured a bright sandstone colour, while certain areas incorporated a darker brick to create a striking contrast. Achieving these beautiful finishes presented a significant challenge for the construction team. 

OUR SOLUTION

SDG offers a full range of precast accessories for AWP systems, including line spacers, spiral tubing, lifting and connecting systems, along with Thermopin Securing Anchors which play a pivotal role in seamlessly connecting the facing and load-bearing layers of the core-insulated concrete components. 

The introduction of the Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) material used in the Thermopin anchors proved highly advantageous, particularly in the narrow structural elements of the construction. This innovative solution ensured optimal performance, reliability, and durability throughout the construction process, enabling the achievement of the desired exquisite finishes with the AWP system.

THE RESULTS 

The Thermopin anchors play a crucial role in the speedy manufacturing of AWP panels, offering quick and easy installation and enabling a small crew to maximise time efficiency and cost savings. Fiberglass double wall connectors also preserve the continuity of insulation.

The AWP system can significantly reduce the construction phase on-site, sometimes up to 50%, this time-saving and cost-effective solution helps to streamline the entire construction process.

By utilising the Thermopin system and other SDG precast accessories within AWP systems, projects can benefit from efficient manufacturing processes, reduced construction timelines and superior quality in thermal conductivity, structural integrity and aesthetics.
