Reliable forming of some pathbreaking architecture

04.10.2011 | Press
Mestia, in the Caucasus mountains of Georgia, is a mediæval town known for its many stone-built defensive towers. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and centre of a major winter sports region, the town has considerable tourist potential, which the Georgian government is making great efforts to develop. Some examples of these efforts may be seen in Mestia’s futuristic airport building, and in a new police station embodying pathbreaking fair-faced concrete architecture. Both these projects were designed by the Berlin firm of Architekten J. Mayer H. For the five-storey police station, Doka delivered high-performing formwork solutions and provided dependable support to the construction operations with a package of services.


  • To transfer the concrete loads from the wave-shaped roof, Doka supplied its high-performance Load-bearing tower Staxo 100.
  • The geometry of the structure resembles a truncated pyramid, with the result that each formwork element could be used only once.
  • Large-area formwork Top 50 is a customisable "construction kit" formwork system designed to accomplish many very diverse types of task.
