Project

New factory building with latest standards of food safety

A modern production facility for baby food is being built in Hessen, a state in mid-Germany. The factory follows high standards of food safety. After being completed, the company’s production  capacities will be doubled in total, helping to meet the growing market demand. 

Concrete works rely on the heavy- duty Mammut 350 (Imperial in the USA) wall formwork and its load capacity of 100 kN/m². This proved necessary when pouring the main hall and the two elevator shafts to heights beyond 40 m. High, fast pours of 11.40 m were completed in as little as three hours. 

Concrete pressure was monitored using pressure gauges attached through tie holes. This way, the site was able to fully and safely utilise the formwork’s load capacity. The formwork climbed on climbing scaffolds KLK 230, whose carriage allows the panels to be pulled back from the freshly poured walls by 70 cm.

    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.
