Fredon is a pioneer in offsite prefabrication and we continue to improve the ways in which prefabricated design integrates with the workflow of large construction projects. This increases the efficiency gains delivered by the technique, including quality, consistency and timeliness of project deliverables regardless of site conditions; and also benefit recycling, labour costs and safety outcomes. Our engineers have achieved a proud record of awards and Australia-first innovations.
Offsite prefabrication and staging of equipment is done at our purpose built facilities by specially skilled and qualified staff.
For the Tower 3 project at Barangaroo in Sydney, the services risers were installed in the jump form tower several floors ahead of the construction process. Ordinarily the prefab module install would need to wait for the jump form to reach a level of about 15 floors, but in this build the prefab modules are keeping pace with the jump form. Also, standard practice is to build temporary safety screens directly into the jump form, which then have to be removed for access. By including the safety fences in the prefabricated modules, that wasted effort is avoided.
