Fletcher Reinforcing’s prefab team is the ‘time’ solution

From small residential piles, in-ground beams and pile caps up to large diaphragm walls, the Fletcher Reinforcing Prefabrication is the “team on the ground, with the capabilities to do it all”.

“At Fletcher Reinforcing, our prefabrication service is designed to help customers increase productivity on site for contractors who are short on time or space. Our quality prefabrication is made in a factory environment which can be controlled, by skilled steel fixers and welders,” says Fletcher Reinforcing’s head of reinforcing, Paul McIver.

In addition to prefabrication, Fletcher Reinforcing also provides an on-site placing service.

“Our placing service, which is available throughout the country, enables us to offer both commercial and industrial construction customers a ‘one-stop-shop package, featuring a quality product installed by our industry experts.

The feedback we’ve had from clients has been extremely positive – they’re pleased that we’ve taken the initiative in offering this service and are eager to use it.”

Providing placing teams with the backing of the company’s systems, particularly concerning health and safety, is highly valued by many clients on projects such as the Justice Precinct in Christchurch and the Waterview Tunnel in Auckland. For major projects, Fletcher Reinforcing will include a steel fixing supervisor in the early contractor discussions so that their experience can be used in the planning phase before a job commences.

By using this service, the site is in constant contact with the processing facility to ensure that last-minute changes on-site or changes to structures can be accommodated efficiently and at speed.

“This service removes a major site health and safety risk from the contractor and gives them the confidence that the steel will be placed in time and in line with the construction schedule.

“We can also place some of our formwork and joint solutions from Max Frank who are renowned for having a wide range of proven products for concrete and reinforced construction.”

Max Frank is a specialist in concrete durability, formwork, reinforcement, sealing technology and acoustics, and is at the forefront of technological development and state-of-the -art manufacture says McIver.

“At Fletcher Reinforcing we have extensive experience of fixing Pecafil and Stremaform in place, this ensures our service is providing nothing but the best, saving you time and space.”
