MEVA formwork had to master exceptional concrete pressures during the pours.
The MEVA engineers were challenged to provide a static concept, starting with a cost-effective method of pouring the floating ceiling for the conference room.
Three tieing methods in one system. The sytem‘s integrated Combi tie of using any of the following tieing methods and flexibly changing from one to another:
Heavy-duty wall formwork. Large panel size 3.50 high, 2.50 width footprint. 100 kN/m² concrete load capacity throughout the system.
