DIVERSAKORE comes to Raleigh! Lysaght & Associates has teamed up with Diversakore, Williams Realty and Building, Cline Design, and Beacon Street to provide the first of many composite steel and concrete structures. Using an innovative system of steel sections, the Diversakore system provides a superior level of structural shoring, permanent concrete framing, as well as fire resistance, while improving on construction time, labor, building weight, waste, and COST.
From Diversakore: “The only place you can get a patented VERSA:T composite framing system, a permanent form-work solution that enhances your building’s performance characteristics by blending the speed of steel and strength of concrete. The VERSA:T beam assembly process yields a composite design which give you more space with less building.”
The tube steel sections are reinforced with rebar, similar to concrete beams, as well as the columns, then filled solid with concrete, in addition to pre-cast concrete panels. These (3)-story condominium projects are going to be a staple in the Five Points area for years to come, and we are proud to be a part of the team.
