University developments by Component Projects.

Component Projects working at Universities.

After recently completing the Ceilings ,Partitions and Bulkheads at the Languages centre at Vaal University of Technology we now look forward to the next challenge.

This has come in the form of the extension to the David Webster Residence at Wits University. The Languages centre consisted of a new building .

The ceilings ,partitions and bulkheads were fitted in new class rooms, administration offices, conference rooms, rest rooms, audio laboratories, resource laboratories ,academic offices and corridors.

The building was four stories high and also included some outside ceilings. The design centred around a circular core which meant a number of the ceilings and bulkheads had to be circular on plan. A central lift and stairway allowed access to all floors. Many of the walls were curved and created a more subtle feeling to the interior space.

The third floor accommodated the administration department which required many individual offices and meeting rooms. This compartmentalisation gives privacy and security to these functions. This was achieved using traditional drywall partitions. With glazed doors to enhance natural lighting to passages.

Suspended ceilings were fitted throughout .The ceiling tile specified was the 1200x600mm Pelican Pinhole design complementing the clean professional look of the building. Drywall bulkheads were constructed where necessary and where aesthetically needed. These areas included rest rooms and passages.

The ceilings ,partitions and bulkhead work at The David Webster Residence will be of a more traditional type. This is necessary to be able to match the new extension to the existing buildings finishes. That said special attention has been taken to incorporate todays insulation requirements.

Insulation will be achieved using Isoboard fitted to concrete soffits. And 130mm thick insulation in roof space.

Matching Ceilings will be achieved by using traditional flush plastered gypsum board ceilings. Existing cove cornices also require to be matched .

These ceilings will create a more homely feel to the building . The students will experience a comfortable ,relaxed environment.

Previous completed works.

The above projects are an addition to our other ceilings ,partitions and bulkhead works carried out at both Wits University and University of Johannesburg .

Component Projects  ceilings, partitions and bulkheads installations have included  Wartenweiler library, Commerce library, Jan Smuts House and Education department at Wits University.

The work was located in the new Food Court.

The importance of a modern enticing food court in the mall redevelopment cannot be under estimated.

A choice of fast food outlets is important to the busy shopper.
It is located in a busy area of the Mall next to main thorough fairs such as the cinemas.

This enables movie goers and people on a night out to enjoy a meal at their favorite restaurant.

This area also accommodates Estoril books, The Hairdresser, Pentravel and the Centre management offices.

All of which required ceilings ,partitions and bulkheads.

There is a large open area for shoppers to relax and or pass the time in.

Seating and work station areas are available for access to the internet at ones leisure.

Bulkheads were erected to enhance the mall and incorporate the shop fronts.

The area is adjacent to entrances 4 and 5.

These both required ceilings, partitions and bulkheads.

Providing aesthetics to these areas as well as closing in services, pipework and ducting.

Much of this work had to be carried out after hours so as to not interfere with the smooth running of the Mall.

It was of utmost importance to achieve the correct end product.

Ceilings, Partitions and Bulkheads

So ceilings, partitions and bulkheads were in some cases rebuilt to new designs.

This was done as we value a first class product in order to showcase our works to the general public.

The end product reveals flowing lines and interesting directional changes in the overall view of the ceiling and bulkhead lay-outs.

The color schemes create a mild unimposing setting allowing the shopper to feel at ease in these newly built surroundings.

We again produced a healthy feel good environment fit for the demands of todays busy general public.

Well done to all involved and we look forward to many hours of enjoyable shopping.

Galvanised sheet reinforcing was incorporated in the partitions. Ceilings were constructed in precast concrete sections where necessary. Lighting and visibility were also considered as a result. Partitions were fitted with windows in most of the offices which enhanced these requirements.

Special access requirements were accounted for by providing custom made doors. Corner protection was provided in high traffic areas. An essential feature in the pursuit of a low maintenance facility.

Bulkhead

Bulkhead, ceiling and partition at Eastgate mall.

Repairing and maintaining ceilings and partitions  was ongoing  so as not to cause undue stress to staff and management. A large proportion of the work had to be carried out after hours which entailed extra challenges.

It was of utmost importance to keep the areas clean & tidy in order to maintain  the ambience of the shopping center. It is important to make the shopper feel at ease in their surroundings.

the main   contractor Stefanutti Stocks co-ordinated the whole project. It was undertaken to very tight program constraints as the client Liberty life could not accept unnecessary delays. As this would impact on tenant satisfaction. The end delivery was monitored throughout the duration of the contract.

Another challenging feature was the redirection of existing services while  maitaining the operation of the mall. Ceilings had to be removed and replaced to enable the redirection of these services.

Above all the safety of Mall staff, shoppers and construction personnel had to be of the utmost importance . This was achieved by constant supervision and reporting of activities. Making sure all areas were covered continually throughout the duration.

At the completion of the project it was notable that all relationships were still maitained and respected. Paving the way for successful future contracts.
