Project: New factory with high food safety standards, Germany
Contractor: Ed. Züblin AG, Bereich Direkt Export & Bereich Dresden in cooperation with Cofely Deutschland GmbH
Formwork Engineering: MEVA Formwork Systems, Germany, Dresden branch
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.

MEVA STB 450 offers flexible solution for narrow, inclined rail section: Near the municipality of Gretzenbach, the four-track route branches into two separate lines. Here, the two southern tracks gradually descend and pass below the cantonal road before entering the new Eppenberg Tunnel.
BIM stands for Building Information Modelling, a holistic, software-based method for optimised planning and execution of construction projects.
MEVA's StarTec and Radius wall formwork played a starring role in the construction of a 20 m tall, plant-shaped viewing tower, built by the shore of Lake Velence, south-west of Budapest.
