The core focus of Zico investment in leading formwork technologies is to improve safety on-site, guarantee a high standard of quality and increase productivity. Zico introduced a leading technology on the New Bunnings Development at (Newstead). The innovation was a new methodology (the client had not previously considered) to deliver false work for supports of precast beam shells and hollow core planks. The system 'Dokamatic' tables was relatively unknown in the market. Zico identified its advantages for the complex nature of the project (i.e. significant heights of suspended slabs). The investment and implementation of the tables was driven by the company’s core values. Safety was significantly improved due to all works conducted at ground level (i.e. eliminating risks of falls at height); Quality with the ability to adjust table height in supporting props at ground level; and program the use of a 10 square meter table reduced the re-cycle times of conventional systems (resulting in a reduction of time and labour resources). Through the identification of this innovation at time of tender Zico were able to secure the project in a competitive market by reducing risk.
