Simple Solutions to Complex Challenges in Toowong
Providing solutions for high density residential and commercial development projects, Ritek Walls Systems, continues to push the boundaries of building technology with a permanent formwork wall system that solves complex construction challenges.
The modern, architect-designed Centra Toowong residential apartment tower is the largest building in Queensland constructed using Ritek XL Wall System.
Positioned in the heart of Toowong in southeast Queensland, the 14-storey building boasts both city and river views.
“Centra Toowong is the seventh consecutive project in which Aspect Property Group utilised Ritek XL Wall System for the building structure, throughout the complex in stairways, lift shafts, partition walls, passage walls, balustrades and for external walls. This speaks to the reliability and effectiveness of the system as a high-quality solution to projects of such a large scale,” says Brenden Ewings, Project Manager, Aspect property Group.
With wide usage of system across the entire build significant time and cost savings were made as the efficient Ritek XL Wall panels were pre-fabricated to custom dimensions and delivered to site.
“Ritek was the best way to meet the tight construction program with limited site space and access. Weather was not a major concern as the System allows for a quick set-up and concrete pour, creating a wall that’s straight and strong,” continues Brenden.
The builder was able to undertake innovative construction methods due to the Ritek XL Wall System including prefabricated bathroom and laundry pods.
Brenden continues, “The Ritek XL Wall System gave room to use more creative approaches with building while not detracting from quality of finish.”
The resulting building has a superior quality finish that was facilitated through the use of the Ritek Wall System which supports a variety of different façade applications that brings the building to life.
