One of GETO’s customers has studied special building structures to protest against earthquakes. Their company mission is to provide solutions to save lives and deliver affordable housing in earthquake-prone areas. Finally, the local government highly appreciated and recognized their building solution, which adopted the GETO Precast Mould System.
1. How these structures works?
Seismic isolated fundamental work on the same principle as a“tilted doll”. Unlike other seismic isolation system, it doesn’t require any regular maintenance. GETO Precast Mould System helps clients save a lot of money for later maintenance.
2. The characters of the precast system
The clients provide the architectural plan, elevation plan and section only, there is no structural plan, because it’s beamless structure. However, they require us to provide aluminium forms for the column parts. it’s not the same as normal square columns. The difference is that we need to reserve several holes for steel rebar and those holes should be open precisely, here let me share some attached photos from GETO precast factory. Our customer calls it as “PBS” column.
3. The advantages of the system
This precast formwork system has two main components that can be used independently. The factory produced precast columns and precast slabs are combined and welded on site. No beams are required that reduces building weight, cost and time of construction.
