Silver Hills, Hawke’s Bay - QPOD™ | Earth Friendly Flooring | ArchiPro

Silver Hills, Hawke’s Bay

Silver Hills was an interesting project, 360m2 incorporating the QPOD™ Raft system. Engineered by Design Phase Hastings the slab was situated on a steep hill cut site with engineered retaining walls on either side. Although featuring challenging contour conditions the slab design was nothing extra special with std 305mm FFL and 85mm topping, several load thickening, and control joints in the slab assisted with the shape and complexity of the foundation loadings. Adrian Mooney from Pronto Build enjoyed his first-ever experience with QPOD™ Earth-Friendly Flooring commenting “It’d be great to try it on a standard build if we got that opportunity”.

“For a first time with QPOD™ there’s always the learning process, like when we first learned how to lay Rib Raft but being a windy site, we would have had problems with polystyrene up here. This was a complex site; it’d be great to try it on a standard build if we go that opportunity.”
