Superintendent Mike Demos looks to MEVA for Formwork Solutions on Tough Jobs

On parts of the building the architect required an architectural finish using colored concrete – easily achieved with the Imperial wall formwork and its all-plastic, 100 % wood-free facing alkus. Three cores and one shear wall required the climbing scaffold KLK. Each core was poured in several
16’-0 high lifts. 

Superintendent Mike Demos: “Imperial is a quick, efficient system. We poured 20’-0 walls in less than two hours. Impressive! Although we´ve never used a jump forming system, the KLK proved to be amazingly simple and easy to learn.“
