Flatdeck goes flat out


One of the latest high quality developments sees the addition of QuBa to Auckland’s skyline.


QuBA, located in the Quay Park Precinct of Auckland’s CBD, is a development consisting of boutique commercial space and high-end residential apartments. The pinnacle of QuBa is its eight-storey apartment building, housing more than 100 separate apartments.


Due to the short lead times associated with the construction of the building, steel framing and steel flooring was an obvious choice. The main contractors for the project were Dominion Constructors Ltd, with the fabrication and erection by D&H Steel Construction Ltd and Composite Floor Decks Ltd laying the steel flooring.


The Dominion team worked alongside MSC Consulting Group Ltd, with engineer at the time Bruce McNaughton. He specified Dimond Flatdeck Composite Steel Flooring as the main flooring system to be used.


Flatdeck was a great choice for this type of job, lending many benefits, including savings in time and money with its ease of installation, and providing constructors with the ability to work on multiple floors at one time.


More than 8000sq m of Flatdeck was laid in the project, and with this being the first large commercial job for Flatdeck, Dimond believes it has met all the needs of designers and customers alike — in going flat out for the flooring fit out.
