KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital – Singapore
To provide bearer support for timber decking and conceal large drainage pipes and services beneath without compromising existing waterproofing.
VersiJack pedestals extended with 3 extenders to the appropriate height were positioned in spaced rows. Fall in the floor slab and accurate height adjustments did not pose a problem with the aid of a slope corrector and a height adjusting screw and lock ring system for height adjustments integrated in each pedestal. Bearers to accept the decking were securely installed on to the pedestals using bearer holders. The raised timber decking converts the previously inaccessible area originally reserved for services to additional amenity and recreational space for the hospital.
