Project: New Emergency Room Facilities at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI
Contractor: Barton Malow
Engineering and support: MEVA Formwork Systems, Inc. Springfield, OH
The new Emergency Care Centre at the William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan will cover 125,300 ft², nearly doubling the size of the current 70,000 ft² facility. The expansion will include 125 private rooms with a section dedicated to paediatric care. It will also feature a new rooftop helipad for critical emergencies.
Contractor Barton Malow chose MEVA’s heavy-duty wall system Imperial in combination with the STB support frame and heavy-duty Triplex braces to meet all needs for the foundations of the new Emergency Room facilities.
The support frame STB 450 combined with the heavy-duty Imperial wall panels proved to be the ideal solution for the walls being poured against excavated ground. The Triplex braces were ideal for their flexibility in height adjustment and their strength to cope with the high pour loads.
With a load capacity of 2,025 psf, the Imperial is capable of taking any pour speed up to a height of 13 ft. without considering concrete type or climatic conditions.

High, Fast, Safe: A state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical production plant is being built for the US biotechnology company Biogen, located on the grounds of a former paper factory in Luter bach near Solothurn, Switzerland.
One of the latest thrills: Float like a bird at a skydiving center, where an artificial airstream will keep you up in the air.
The solution: table forms, 5.40 m long to exactly fit into the openings between the columns. Short filler pieces with rounded edges provided a perfect match to the column layout.
