Silent Gliss Office Building

This 3 storey, structural steel-framed office building was constructed for Silent Gliss blind manufacturing company. The office spans 46m x 13.7m, and is 10.8m high. All walls of the office are clad down to finished floor level with a composite cladding panel. REIDsteel provided the steel frame with cladding, and glazed curtain walling on the front of the building, as well as roof glazing with electrically operated opening vents. The building has external steel spiral staircases at each end of the office, and an internal feature staircase with steel balustrades.

CMT Dormitories, Mauritius

François Woo, owner of CMT, decided to create decent hotel-like structures for all his workers, with quality bedrooms, washing, toilets, showers and laundry facilities, and top quality kitchens and leisure facilities. These became the REIDsteel ‘dortoirs’. These were, of course, regular REIDsteel Steel Buildings, with steel main frames and joists at close centres with composite decking and trim. They permitted very quick erection, were much safer, and lighter weight because the slabs only spanned short distances joist to joist. They also allowed unpropped pouring of the slender slabs and smaller foundations.

University Dormitories, Madagascar

The improving education system in Madagascar has led to an increase in the number of students going on to University, leading to a rise in demand for accommodation, particularly for students coming from remote areas. REIDsteel have now constructed four dormitory buildings in Madagascar, in both plateau and cyclonic zones.

A typical dormitory building is 60m x 20m, and 12m high over 4 floors. Steelwork includes portal frames and composite decking, with a curved segmental roof. The dortoirs built in cyclonic zones are designed to withstand seismic movement and high wind speeds (see earthquake and hurricane resistant buildings

All the steel is hot-rolled and is prepared and galvanised to 85 microns thick.
