One Up is a revolutionary preformed column system that provides a safer and faster building solution to conventional column formwork and
on-site steel fixing. Our prefabricated columns are designed and manufactured in NSW to structural engineer’s specifications and delivered to site ready to be lifted into place as soon as the underlying deck is poured.

Product Advantages

faster_build_time

REDUCES CRITICAL
PATH TIMES

Columns are manufactured in our factory so inclement weather and other onsite limitations do not affect production. As soon as the underlying slab has set, entire floors of columns can be placed in just a few hours, allowing formworkers to simultaneously start construction on the subsequent deck.

reduces_site_labour_cost

REDUCES SITE LABOUR
COSTS & MANAGEMENT

One Up reduces the number of formworkers and steel fixers required on-site, as there is no need to form up, tie cages, close, and brace columns. Further, the builder doesn’t need to co-ordinate column reinforcement steel orders and delivery, steel fixing and formworkers within the programme at every pour stage.

 

easy_and_quick_to_install

EASY AND
QUICK TO INSTALL

By following our installation instructions, individual column installation can be completed on average in 10-15 minutes (including crane time) per column in one move directly into position.

 

versatile_and_aesthetically_better

VERSATILE &
AESTHETICALLY BETTER

Columns achieve a perfect concrete/steel skin finish. No rendering is required. Columns can incorporate services such as ducts and downpipes and can be made with removable stop or fixed ends.

reinforcement_advantages

STRUCTURALLY
SUPERIOR

Made to engineer design specifications ensuring perfect reinforcement spacings and tolerances thus providing greater structural integrity. Sacrificial formwork is left in place which also provides extra strength and protection to the concrete column.

zero_waste

FULLY SUSTAINABLE
– ZERO WASTE

Only the finished elements are delivered to site. Minimal or nil post-concrete pour stripping is required and stop ends are returned to our factory for reuse. No need to dispose of ply offcuts as per conventional methods. Cleaner, safer decks and fewer skip bin changeovers.

contributes_to_onsite_safety

CONTRIBUTES TO
ONSITE SAFETY

No open penetrations on deck reduces fall hazards. Fewer workers, equipment, and material reduces site congestion making it safer to work in tight environments.

easy_delivery

EASY
DELIVERY

Entire levels/pours of columns can be delivered to site. Columns can be stacked on the delivery truck according to the client’s preferred order of installation.
