An insight into ‘Double Tees’

Farmers Tauranga Development is the largest private development outside of Auckland and this month we provide an insight into one of the structural elements that highlight the scale of the project.

The development uses ‘Double Tees’ as part of the flooring structure across the car park and the Farmers retail store. Double Tees are concrete precast flooring units weighing at least seven tonnes each and are lifted into place by the tower cranes. The slabs are then reinforced with steel and concrete over the top of the Double Tees to create the flat surface.
