Project: Office and storage complex with cantilevering, trapezoid slabs for Bönisch Ges. mbH, Gramastetten, Austria
Contractor: Schmid Hochbau GmbH, Frankenburg, Austria
Formwork Engineering: MEVA Schalungs- Systeme, Pfaffstätten, Austria
Home heating specialist Bönisch in Gramastetten, Austria is building a new office and storage complex with a trapezoid layout. Contractor Schmid used the MevaDec and MevaFlex slab systems and MEP shoring towers for the trapezoid slabs, 30 cm thick and 260 m² large, part of which cantilever.
MevaDec: fewer filler areas
The MevaDec‘s drop-head, beam and panel method, used on this site, allows the panels and beams to be stripped early, saving inventory and speeding up workflow. More importantly, there is no fixed layout, so the forming direction can alternate – a big plus when adjusting to irregular layouts. This minimized costly compensation areas.
MevaFlex on MEP shoring towers for cantilevering slabs at 12 m
The biggest challenge was forming the cantilevering roof slab at heights of 9 to 12 m, for which the MevaFlex forms rested on high MEP shoring towers.
No subsequent costs
Contractor Schmid wisely opted for the rental insurance scheme RentalPlus, which covers all subsequent costs that are incurred at the end of a rental project, for instance for repairs and re-facing. A small fee covers all these costs, reducing rental time and costs. Calculation is clear from the start.

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.
The new theater is called The Otto M. Budig Theater and located in Cincinnati’s Over-The-Rhine district. When completed, it will become the last section of the planned “Classical Arts Corridor” in Cincinnati, which also includes a Music Hall, School for Creative and Performing Arts, and a park.
