Doka to promote #ShapeOurWorld career campaign at WorldSkills 2017 in Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi – Doka to promote its #ShapeOurWorld campaign, including full sponsorship of this year’s Concrete Construction Competition, at the 44th WorldSkills Competition, hosted in Abu Dhabi in October 2017.
Doka supplies super-stable formwork for the tallest cooling tower in Greece
Ptolemaida - On site at one of the biggest projects in Greece in recent years, construction of the lignite-fired power plant Ptolemais Block V needs cooling-tower formwork expertise from Doka, plus compliance with a very special structural requirement. This is the first time that Doka has used an earthquake-proof design to form the first rings of a cooling tower.
Competence at any height
Every highrise is unique – as is the associated formwork solution. Competence is crucial for developing a custom formwork solution. In the highrise sector Doka has more than 40 years' experience with self-climbing formwork. This year, the company will successfully carry out its 1,000th highrise project. Right now, one of the projects is the Central Park Tower in New York, the world's tallest residential building.
After only two and half years of construction, parts of Istanbul's new airport will open next year. For rapid progress on this build, the contractor is relying on the formwork solution from Doka. A total of 30,000 load-bearing tower frames will be used.
The world's tallest residential building, the Central Park Tower will top out at 472 metres. It is currently under construction in New York City. The method of construction is special and Doka's automatic climbing platforms are the ideal solution, both fast and safe. The building is due for completion in 2020.
Doka UK was awarded for the innovative concrete- sensor technology Concremote with this year's Construction News Award.
High speed on two wheels. That's what has made Upper Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM world-famous. But right now at company HQ in Mattighofen, the howl of high-revving motorbike engines is overlaid by the low growl of construction machinery. On a 9,500 m2 site, work on the new KTM museum is in progress and should be finished by the end of 2018. The formwork for the unusual, ellipsoid-shaped building is all by formwork specialist Doka. Good handling and a superb fair-faced concrete finish are the essentials.
The new office building in the Old Port district of Marseilles
Long since the national anthem of France, from 2018 onward La Marseillaise will also be the name of a new office tower in the city of Marseilles. Formwork engineering from Doka scored convincingly on this build by meeting ultra-high requirements for infrastructure and safety and by assisting progress with short assembly times and fast cycles.
Unusual geometry and best-time progress: formworking operations 50 % faster and commissioning quantities lower on the AWO-Föhrenpark retirement home project.
Doka's biggest ever power-plant contract in North America: for the construction of the Keeyask Generating Station 300,000 sq ft of Doka formwork are in use. Doka’s services on this site range from engineering and consulting, up to pre-assembly and instructions for a safe use of the formwork systems. Completion is scheduled for 2021.
