Project: New railway concourse on the railway line between St. pölten and Vienna
Consortium:TF7 Bahnhof Tullnerfeld AST und Wolff & Müller
Formwork engineering: MEVA Schalungs-Systeme, Pfaffstätten, Austria
The Tullnerfeld Concourse is special since it lies under the railway bed and consists of two tunnels, 62 m long, that function as access area with shops and restaurants.
The tunnels had to be built so as to take the exceptional loads of train traffic running above them. In addition, special emphasis was placed on the architectural finish of the concrete. 52 columns, 340 cm high, but varying in width from 50 to 470 cm, had to be poured in exactly the same concrete finish. To enhance this effect, each pair of columns facing each other had to be completed in a single pour. MEVA formwork engineers decided on a pre-bent alkus all-plastic facing sheet on a lattice construction that was fitted to two support frames STB 450. The solution proved ingenious and very cost-effective.
After the first trial runs, the architects and owners were more than happy with the result and the site could begin with the work. Design highlights were added in the process, when the architects chose a particular nail imprint on the columns, changing from pair to pair. Stencils were used and replaced after each pour.

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.
