The site had to construct just over 500 metres of diaphragm walling, which was 30 metres deep. Through 3D modelling, the site was able to arrange for prefabricated reinforcement cages to be delivered and placed in single lengths.
The particularly innovative aspect was the use of 3D modelling to create formwork for each one of the steel cage panels. The formwork was cut on site using a 3D cutting machine.
This whole operation provided for a much safer environment and also had considerable savings in energy production (CO2) and cost.
