PERTH ZOO CAFE & FUNCTION CENTRE
The Perth Zoo Café & function centre development was engineered and specified to suit the Surefoot concrete free footing system. As this project was aiming to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible Surefoot footing were used to minimize the use of concrete whilst preserving the health of the heritage listed trees which surrounded the site. Our team consulted with a qualified arborist and surveyors throughout installation ensuring the position of the footings avoided the delicate root systems. Using Surefoot cut the cost and installation time significantly in comparison to concrete. After the Surefoot system was installed there was no waiting for concrete to cure, the riggers were able to immediately land the steel columns ready for the next stage of construction.
With an emphasis on sustainability, Surefoot continues to minimise their environmental footprint. Surefoot footings have lesser amount of embodied energy in comparison to concrete footings
Offering quick installation, Surefoot is a time efficient process that can significantly reduce construction time by half on many structures.
All materials used in manufacturing and installing Surefoot comply with all relevant Australian, New Zealand and international standards.
