Maxwell Parkade and Bridge, Midrand

Project data

Location: Midrand, South Africa

A large parkade and bridge form the base of a landscaped area at the entrance to the Mall of Africa in Waterfall City, a 330-ha mixed use commercial estate in Midrand, Gauteng.


4 000 m² bridge with architectural steel enhancements. Each end of the bridge had a 3 m overhang. At the one end, the overhang had to be supported from the parking slab and at the opposite end, it had to span a 4.5 m embankment of sloping soil, which was not suitable to deck from. The adjacent 40 000 m² parking structure included a transfer slab at the top level which had to be able to carry a 1.5 m soil filling, so that the client could create the grass terrace on top.


Archstone Construction

Customer's benefit

The support consisted of a line of Quick Shore towers under the Downstand beams with one line of support between adjacent beams to support the slabs. This method reduced the amount of shoring needed by 50% saving the customer time and money.
