Peikko South Africa Press Release – Webinar series

Equipping South Africa with faster and more efficient construction methods: Peikko Webinar to discuss Slim Floor way to Design & Build with Peikko DELTABEAM®

With Africa’s population expected to be on the rise into 2050, the International Energy Agency predicts that Africa's floorspace will triple in the next 30 years, from under 30 billion m2 to almost 90 billion m2.

“To meet this demand, the South African construction industry needs to relook at its building methods and tools, and embrace innovation to achieve a faster, safer and more efficient design and build process,” says Peikko Southern Africa MD, Daniel Petrov.

DELTABEAM® Slim Floor Structure allows you to build open spaces – even with architecturally demanding shapes. Compatible with precast and cast-in-situ slabs as well as any type of columns, DELTABEAM® makes your construction process faster and more efficient.

Peikko’s DELTABEAM® Slim Floor Structure is a flexible solution always tailored to the customer’s needs. It enables slender and light structural solutions that provide savings in terms of volume and costs. Its composite action between steel and concrete allows for creative structures with large open spaces.

DELTABEAM® has excellent fire resistance without any additional protection. Its shallow design decreases a building’s floor-to-floor height while eliminating conflicts with HVAC systems.

DELTABEAM® can be connected to concrete, steel, or composite columns by using Peikko’s innovative solutions, such as Hidden Corbels, Anchor Bolts, or Welding Plates.

On 12 August 2020 at 10:00a.m. CAT, Peikko South Africa and Peikko Group will co-host their second webinar in a series which aims to promote modern, proven and efficient design and construct solutions to the South African industry. With a focus on the Group’s DELTABEAM® Slim Floor solution, Petrov managing director for South Africa and his co-host, Simo Hakkarainen, business director for DELTABEAM®, will engage with participants on the benefits and applications of DELTABEAM®. The design process and available tools will also be explained, showing how to specify and implement this technology in your project. Registration for the webinar can be done online here.



The webinar series is aimed at developers, engineers, PQS, architects and contractors and will continue to introduce them to methods and tools to enable faster and more efficient project delivery. These methods can help construction teams make up for the valuable time lost due to lockdown and workforce restrictions.
