Pre cast technology has been used successfully with the technology of Moorelivings in construction for many decades in Eastern Europe, particularly in Eastern Germany, Hungary, Romania and USSR. It has also been used extensively in Australia, New Zealand, USA and Gulf countries.

Background

Founded by Gavin Moore in 1989 when he first patented his building system for insulated Precast panels.

Mooreliving is now the world leader in residential precast and has developed several systems to accomplish this.

It has constructed over 5000 contempory designed homes to date, making it the largest concrete home builder in Australasia.

Panel Technology - VMS Series

The VMS Series is Mooreliving's premier molding system and can produce between 5 to 20 panels per pour.

It builds on proven technology from our other programs to deliver the fastest production from panel manufacturers.

Benefits:

  •  Decreased labour requirements

  •  Decreased finishing time

  •  Higher Production Volume for Usable Space

  •  Suited for Repetitive Pours

  •  Can Facilitate 2 Pours per day

  •  Utilises Mooreliving Magnetic Edge Forms

  •  Superior finish (up to F5)

  •  Electrical Conduit & Door / Window Frames are installed at the time of casting


Panel Technology

Precast concrete can easily attain strengths of between 15 to 70MPA depending on the engineering requirements of the building.

All Panels are produced using Mooreliving's Patented chemical curing and forming processes.

All concrete is batched onsite allowing for a greater control over the mix formulation and setting times.

Has a high degree of dimensional accuracy (+-2mm) compared to conventional cast in situ (+-10mm).

M3 Construction System

Mooreliving developed the M3 (Cubed) System to provide a modular transportable housing system that features all the benefits of our existing products.

The M3 system combines a series of cubes to create the overall building, this provides complete flexibility in the layout. This allows it to deliver everything from low cost homes through to multi-storey apartments.

Each unit is constructed using precast panels for the walls. These are then assembled to create the cubes shell.

The unit is then ready for the installation of its roof. This is either a pitched roof for top levels, or a flat roof for lower levels.

When Complete, the units are loaded onto trucks for shipping to the assembly site.

Foundations and Services Completed The installation process for each level is:

  •  Install Cubes

  •  Install Walkways & Stairs

  •  Install Drainage & Water Mains

  •  Install Electrical Services

  •  Proprietary Works

Top Floor:

  •  Install the roof panels on the top cubes.

  •  Pour topping slab on roof with drainage falls.

  •  Waterproof roofing slab

  •  Install water tanks and connections

Speed of Construction

The M3 system adds a whole new level of speed to the construction process. For example, our Western Australian project (44 Units), all onsite works were completed in less than 90 days.

As the cubes are constructed on a production line, construction speed can be scaled to suit the local demand.

This can vary from 10 to 100s of cubes per week, depending on output requirements. With the only limiting factor on output is the amount of space in the facility.

Environmental Resistance

All Mooreliving Building Systems feature the following environmental resistance:

  •  Fire Rated (120/120/60 by AU Standard)

  •  Category 5 Earth Quake Rated (highest)

  •  Cyclone resistant (320+km/h)

  •  Sound Rated (up to STC50)

  •  Green Star Rating of 8 in WA (4 is minimum)

  •  For thermal comfort we propose to use a reflective paint to minimise heat transfer. (Up to 95%)

Material Specification / Durability

Concrete is on of the most doable building materials used in construction today.

Unlike other construction materials that can rust, rot, or otherwise degrade.

When in the presence of moisture, concrete can actually get stronger if there are anhydrite cement particles available to react with the water.

Due to its factory construction and stringent quality-control, we can achieve consistency in temperature, moisture and low water cement ratios that are not possible with onsite fabrication.

  •  Impermeable to Air Infiltration & Wind-Driven Rain

  •  Resistant to Solar Radiation

  •  Resistant to Animal/Insect Infestation

  •  Resistant from Freezing/Thawing Damage

  •  Resistant to the Abrasive Effects of Ordinary Weather

  •  Chemically Inert


Quality Control & Codes

All Mooreliving Panels are tested using UPV methods for inspection. In some cases, RFID technology can be used to track and store panel history.

The Manufacture and Assembly process along with the structural designs conforms to the codes and procedures as set down by the consulting engineer to comply with all relevant building standards as per National Building Code of India - 2005.

The building carries a warranty for 5 years against structural design and manufacturing defects.

Sustainability

All Mooreliving facilities will easily meet local and state ordinances and all emission requirements. Initiatives within the industry include:

Use of local Materials in all mixtures: local aggregate resources

Reducing cement requirements by lowering water cement rations

Water reclamation and recycling

  •  Use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) for quicker placement, no vibration, and reduced surface defects.

  •  Reinforcement that allows lighter and larger concrete sections with less embedded energy.

  •  User of supplemental cementations materials (SCMs) to reduce cement consumption.

  •  Utilising steel form parts for multiple reuses: remove the waste associated with wooden forms.

  •  Recycling all scrap steel and reinforcement for minimal wastage Reducing and reusing product packaging.


Structural Certification

All Mooreliving panels have undergone extensive testing to ensure they meet all the structural requirements of NZ/AU/IS and other international markets.

Structural test preformed by:

  •  Dorian Engineering, Perth, Australia

  •  Building Research Australia & NZ (BRANZ)

  •  Structural Engineering & Research Centre, Chennai (SERC)

  •  Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU)

  •  Building Materials & Technology Promotion Council of India (BMTPC) Recommended for Adoption


Monolithic construction is a method where a structure is Monolithically built using a Homogeneous Material. Adopting the best formwork system, Monolithic concrete construction & appropriate materials will lead to Fast track, cost effective sustainable development in construction ensuring quality, time, cost & durability due to Homogeneity.

Advantages of the Concept.

  • Speed and Strength: The method allows fast track construction on mass scale also It's shape gives the building extremely high structural strength against vertical & horizontal forces.

  • Dead load: The dead weight of the monolithic structure is almost 50% of the conventionally constructed multistoried structures.

  • Cost savings: Because of reduced dead load, superstructure and foundation cost are minimized without compromising on strength. cost.

  • Skilled Labour: Very few skilled workers are required in this method, thus allowing time bound mass scale housing construction even with limited human resources.

  • Errorless construction: Modular shape leaves no scope for error as far as geometric irregularities or imperfections are concerned.

  • Smoothness: Proper formwork materials and excellent finished surface avoids expensive plastering and enhances a relatively water resistant surface. No need of bricks, blocks and plastering.

  • All at one time: All services like electrical, plumbing & Sanitary are embedded before concreting which avoids breaking & making of structures.

  • Maintenance Free: The cement concrete monolithic structures once built will always be maintenance free.

  • Environment friendly: Allows use of fly ash in the mix.

  • Customisation: Most of the key components like walls, columns, beams, floor slabs, staircases, balconies, openings, hoods, storage lofts, etc., are monolithically concreted in-site.

These structures are efficient against earth-quake due to its single rigid block nature.
