Urban construction sites often battle with confined space and congested delivery access. This was the case when the Hôpital Cochin clinic in Paris was rebuilt and extended. 42.000 m² of slabs had to be poured on 5 levels and within a tight time schedule. What’s more, the site had to master irregular and constantly changing slab layouts without a single right angle.
This added up to a Formula 1 challenge for the MevaDec system. It is the only system that does not follow a rigid grid. The panels can change direction flexibly and compensation areas thus be reduced to below 20 cm. Site-built filler areas are thus minimised, saving time and labour. Forming around the large numbers of columns made this benefit very apparent. Using identical parts, the workers simply left out a panel and slid in secondary beams around the columns, on which they laid out wooden facing to fill the small compensation area.
The site also relied on MEVA’s shoring system MEP to achieve slab heights beyond 4 m and support the many concrete beams.

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.
