First non-residential structure
External and internal leaf wall
Step-down slab
High winds, heavy rain and hail

Hadrian X® achieved an average laying speed during uptime of approximately 174 blocks per hour, or approximately 800 SBEs per hour, improving upon the results achieved during the display home build in Dayton, Western Australia. A peak laying speed of 228 blocks per hour, or 1,049 SBEs per hour was demonstrated during the build.

The completed structure is 15 courses high including slab step-down, or approximately one and a half storeys, with brick ties manually installed. Completed entire one and a half storey wall structure before needing to install scaffold for roof – no interruptions to bricklaying.

Roof trusses made according to 3D CAD model before brickwork started and immediately installed following completion of brickwork.
