The Cornerstone Holcon Modular System has two major components
These integrated columns and beams, which we call Cornerstone Portal Beams are installed directly onto foundations. Typically 8 metres long by 3 metres high, these beams are also available in 6 metres and 10 metres lengths.
When two portal beams are fastened together, the void space between them acts as a conduit for utilities.
Cornerstone Floor & Ceiling elements provide the greatest possible freedom in concept and design with the capability to produce spans up to 30m which can accommodate loads of up to 40 kN/m2 without the additional support of columns.
Floor panels with easy access utilities
Our unique patented technology dramatically reduces the difficulty of utility installation for sub-contractors. No other system on the market compares in terms of ease of use.
The benefits of our modular system last long beyond the construction phase of the building. As the churn rate or turnover of tenants has rapidly increased over the last few years, our system is the perfect solution for any modern office. Owners will now be able to quickly and cost effectively adapt to today’s mobile businesses and the ever-changing economy.
Adapting to these needs can be a challenge in conventional buildings, but Cornerstone includes easy access flooring panels that are readily removable to allow quick access to the under floor services such as;
Fire detection and suppression
Water and drainage
Depending on the design of the building and the spans required, these modular elements can vary in length from 8m, 12m, 16m and even up to 30m. Each of these modular elements is only 2m wide, offering the most flexible design possible to the building owner. The variety of sizes available gives you the freedom to relocate power-points or other utilities as your new tenants require.
Gone are the days of lengthy office refurbishments. Our flooring system is so smooth that no screed is required. Adhesive carpet tiles are laid directly on the modular floor elements. Should the owner or tenant require further power-points, they can simply lift up the adhesive floor tiles and install them directly.
The in-built flexibility of the interchangeable panels facilitates quick, painless changes to office services and layout. In commercial buildings, the movement of office partitioning and expansion is now easier than ever. This is particularly useful for the relocation of a data centre.
The result is a neat environment that enhances productivity and ensures easy expansion.
Cornerstone Holcon System
When utilities and conduits are enclosed within the void of our Holcon modular flooring elements, we’re able reduce the overall thickness of the floors by over 30%. This is possible because a false ceiling is no longer required to house them.
This reduces the overall height of a building by 7m on a 30 storey building, potentially allowing the developer to construct 2 extra storeys on a building of the same height. If you’re planning to lease space for residential or commercial use, this provides an obvious benefit.
