Abstract

This research determines environmental advantages achievable through application of alternate concrete slab construction methods for a typical concrete office building. The collaborative pilot study has been conducted to compare the significant material reductions on alternate slab systems to improve sustainable design methods. These structures were designed in accordance with all relevant Australian standards, incorporating various concrete strengths and various geometric parameters such as the number of columns, spans and the associated effect on slab thickness influencing environmental performance. The results indicated that environmental advantages are achievable through the application of alternate concrete slab construction methods for the typical office structure. Analysis results indicated a 21.5 to 34.4% reduction in concrete volume and 23% to 44% reduction in steel mass for the post tensioned structure compare with the conventional reinforced structure.
