    The CorTek Core Construction System The CorTek Core Construction System Presentation Transcript

    • Core Construction System Presented By: Aaron Rutledge CorTek, Inc. 999 Van Buren Ave. Loveland, CO 80537 Phone: 970-663-2222 Fax: 970-663-9969 [email_address] www.corteksystems.com
    • Product Overview
      • Stay-in-place modular form system for concrete core structures
      • Factory built modules stack like building blocks.
      • Custom-built to the specific requirements of each project.
    • Features:
      • Unequalled speed of construction
      • High tolerance, all-steel construction.
      • Minimal field work.
      • Modules are load-bearing before concrete.
      • Cost Competitive.
    • Difficult/slow/error-prone field work brought into a controlled factory environment set up for efficiency and quality. Computer aided parametric design used for rapid parametric structural and architectural design. Decreased site congestion increases project flow. Freeing site schedule from concrete core schedule increases “battle plan” options. An Advanced Building System
    • Benefits:
      • Immediate presence of stairs allows trades early and safe access to structure
      • Elimination of many dangerous field operations
      • Can eliminate the need for scaffolding
      • Reduction of poor fit-up and coordination problems among trades
      • Cores generally part of the critical path—the CorTek system cannot be beat for speed--reducing overall schedule by weeks or months on most projects.
    • Target Projects
        • MULTI-STORY BUILDINGS OF ALL TYPES . . . . . .
        • Structural steel framed buildings.
        • Wood framed buildings.
        • Concrete framed buildings.
        • Industrial Structures.
        • Current production equipment tooled for 8” - 12” thick walls to target 3-12 story buildings.

    • Competition
      • Price for a typical stair core story with 2 flights of stairs, 6 embeds and ledger angle at floor perimeter. Price includes placed concrete and all installation costs
      • Conventional Methods
        • Cast-In-Place: $33,192/Story*
        • Pre-Cast: $44,529/Story*
        • Masonry: $30,754*
      • CorTek: $33,514 @ $14,380/Mod
      • *Based on independent estimate provided by Will Hopkins of the Icon Group

    • Optional wall thickness Effective thickness: 8” 10” 12” Actual thickness: 10” 12” 14” Because of the much higher tolerances of the CorTek System, the resulting finished wall assembly can be thinner than conventional methods for many applications.
    • Pre-installed stairs
    • Railings shipped ready to bolt on
    • Optional Stair & Railing Designs Pan treads Checkered plate treads Grating treads Parallel tube rails Picket rails Wire mesh rails
    • Parallel Tube Railing
    • Mesh Railing
    • Picket Railing
    • Elevator Core
    • Safety—A Job Site’s Most Important Consideration Moving formwork to a controlled factory environment eliminates many dangerous field operations

    • Where’s the rest of the structure?
    • Concurrent Framing Framing does not wait for formwork—saving weeks to months on project schedule
    • Competition
      • Price for a typical stair core story with 2 flights of stairs, 8 embeds and ledger angle at floor perimeter. Price includes placed concrete and all installation costs
      • Conventional Methods
        • Cast-In-Place: $38,574/Story*
        • Pre-Cast: $49,219/Story*
        • Masonry: $34,346/Story*
      • CorTek: $36,786

      • Based on independent estimate provided by the Icon Group September 2008
    • A Load Bearing Form
      • Vertical and horizontal structural elements support construction loads and allow form to be modularized.
      • Structural skeleton allows for support of stairs, landings, structural framing, scaffolding, personnel, and other construction loads
      • Form does not require stripping
      • Finished wall structurally equal to a conventional 8”-12” CIP concrete wall
    • Design
      • Direct Replacement for Conventional Cast-In-Place—no extra work required for Architect or Structural Engineer.
      • Conventional concrete rebar configurations.
      • No proprietary design methods or material strengths.
      • No requirement for special code approvals.
    • Complete Detailed Shop Drawings
      • Stair and Railing Layouts
      • Rebar details
      • Framing and Floor Connections
      • 3D Revit model available for each project.
    • Quality
      • Parametric modeling essentially eliminates detailing mistakes.
      • Controlled manufacturing environment.
      • Multiple failsafing operations.
      • Rigid Quality Assurance Program
      • Jigs, Fixtures and Design provide extraordinarily tight tolerances
    • Job Site Efficiency >Enabling Lean Construction
      • Drastic reduction of field labor.
      • Just In Time Delivery minimizes site congestion.
      • Core construction can be concurrent with frame construction.
      • Re-work from misplaced embeds, doors, bulging concrete and leaning or twisted towers eliminated
      • Several cores can be constructed simultaneously
