Project: Coop logistics centre in Schafisheim, Switzerland
Contractor: Marti AG, Bauunternehmung, Zurich
Bauherr: Coop Genossenschaft, Basel
Formwork engineering: MEVA Formwork Systems, Seon, Switzerland
Retail trade corporation Coop is building a new logistics headquarters encompassing five new buildings, a space of 240.000m² and 1,5 Mio.m³ building volume. It is Switzerland's largest private construction project. The largest single building is the production and logistics centre on 14 levels. Alone the excavation has a 300 x 100 x 25m layout. Contractor Marti from Zurich is using MEVA formwork to complete concrete works, including the wall formwork Mammut 350.
Ganging just once saves time
Thanks to the Mammut 350's panel size range, it was possible to complete 4.15 m pours with just one extension, saving considerable assembly time.
Unlimited pour speed up to 4 m
An additional time saving was achieved by the Mammut 350's high load capacity of 100 kN/m², which allows an unlimited pour speed up to 4 m - irrespective of concrete type and ambient temperatue. It climbs on 100 foldable working platform KAB 190 and climbing platforms KLK 230. The formwork panels are set-up on the KLK using a carriage which allows the formwork to be stripped and retracted safely. The formwork solution allowed the cores to climb climb one level per day.
The slabs in the high bay warehouse rest on prefabricated columns, 13 m high and weighing 15t. They were supported by 10m heavy-duty brackets Triplex-R.
The site is confident in maintaining the tight schedule up to completion.

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.
Children enjoy playing with it, teachers recommend it: the shape sorting box. Based on the popular toy, the architects who conceived the new Meséskert nursery designed the play areas on the top floor as a triangle, circle, and square.
