PROJECT

Speedy. Efficient. Simple.

Master of speed in residential projects: MevaDec with just two components

Normally, supervisor Werner Lesterl is a fervent supporter of the drop-head-beam-and-panel method where the panels slide into primary beams. On this large residential project, his employer, contractor Jos. Ertl of Hörschin, Austria, sent him off to try the panel method for the first time. Werner has become a fan of it.

This large 3-level residential development close to Linz in Austria with its regular, repetitive slab layouts prompted MEVA formwork engineers to suggest the panel method as a cost-effective and very fast solution. The panels are directly supported by the prop heads, no beams are needed. This offers many advantages whenever early stripping brings no benefit to work flow or scheduling. One of them is exceptional speed in assembly with just two system components: panels and props with pre-assembled prop heads. Only two workers are needed for assembly and stripping even for large slab areas as in this case. Crane time is not required. Since the set up is fool-proof and thus virtually error-free, this adds to site safety.

    South Canal Bridge, Ontario: With no crane possible at busy Hwy 400, MevaLite handles the job with ease

    One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.
