Undertaking a construction project is an exciting prospect and a considerable capital investment. It is an opportunity to build something tangible of long-lasting value, however, can only be accomplished once the project has succeeded. Understanding the building construction process from start to finish will assist you in making the right decision where your contractor is concerned as well as improve your ability to supervise the whole process and ensure you get your desired outcome.
The building process will vary depending on scope, complexity and the employed contractor.

The BubbleDeck suspended slab is currently being installed at the PYMS project for the City of Mandurah and GP Down South.
BubbleDeck is a precast concrete floor system which makes floor slabs lighter and stronger by incorporating large, hollow plastic balls in a lattice of steel. With 1kg of recycled plastic replacing 100kg of concrete, it is a low cost and sustainable solution!
The civil stormwater has been completed using Eco Aid storm tanks (pic below) to provide storage capacity and the hydraulic in-grounds and pre-lays are nearing completion.
Going forward; there will be bulk import of fill to bring the site up to design level and then the detailed excavation of the lift pit and footings will commence.
The project is being built on the town’s old tip which was closed in the early 60’s. The challenge for Alita has been ensuring the design accounts for any future potential movement. Alita have achieved this by providing alternative engineered solutions for the building’s substructure.

A special camera collects accurate visual and spatial data to map entire areas in minutes and using powerful algorithms automatically stitches them into a complete, immersive 3D model of a real-world building.
Well, if you own a set of VR glasses you can use the Matterport VR app for Gear VR, Cardboard, and Daydream. Otherwise, you can view it direct from your web browser on your desktop or mobile device. When you select to watch the video, the view will show the “Dollhouse” of the building, if no buttons are clicked it will automatically guide you through the building. However, at any point using your mouse or finger (on your mobile device) you can direct where you would like to go throughout the building.
