Doka offers a wide range of systems and services
Skyscrapers are inherently impressive and construction experts are invariably fascinated by their engineering, design and safety. Only a matter of years ago, a tower 200 metres tall would have ranked as a landmark build. Some projects nowadays surpass that figure by a factor of five. Doka has the right formwork solutions for every highrise project. The company also invests continuously in further development of products and services dovetailed to the individual requirements of customers.
Reconstruction of Puskás Ferenc Stadium – sports stadium of superlatives
Budapest – The FIFA World Cup is in full swing in Russia. Elsewhere, in countries including Hungary, preparations are being made for the UEFA Euro 2020 games. Due for completion in 2019, the new national stadium is under construction in the Hungarian capital. With the capacity to seat just over 67,000 spectators and with a footprint of 210.000 m², the rebuilt of Puskás Ferenc Stadium is slated for three group-stage games and one of the round of 16 games in the Euro 2020 knock-out phase. Doka supplied Climbing formwork MF240 in combination with Large-area formwork Top 50 for construction of the stadium's pylons.
In the heart of Frankfurt's financial district, the OMNITURM tower is currently rising skyward. The almost rectilinear glass tower will bring action to the city's skyline, because at about half-height the tower describes what could be called "a shift of the hip". For this spiralling shift of the building's axis, Doka developed a new protection screen that can tilt forward backward and sideways to 21 °.
Nantong – In China's Jiangsu Province, north of Shanghai, work is in progress on what will be the world's biggest cable-stayed bridge, the Shanghai-Nantong Yangtze River Bridge. As well as the world's longest span (1092 metres), it will also have the tallest pylons at 325 metres. Doka automatic climbing formwork SKE100 plus is being used in combination with Large-area formwork Top 50 to construct the pylons.
Bucharest – In the heart of Romania's capital, a new Orthodox cathedral of impressive dimensions is now under construction. Measuring 124 metres long, 70 metres wide and 120 metres high (at the base of the cross), the place of worship will accommodate up to 5,000 people, making it one of the biggest Christian Orthodox churches in the world. Construction company Strabag is relying on formwork solutions from Doka for the complex geometric structures.
23.03.2018 | Festive award ceremony for the Josef Umdasch Research Prize
Amstetten/Vienna, 23 March 2018 – Members of the international start-up scene assembled yesterday, on Thursday evening, in the Weltmuseum Wien in Vienna in order to celebrate this year’s winners of the Josef Umdasch Research Prize. Dr. Andreas Ludwig, Spokesman of the Executive Board of Umdasch and entrepreneur Ali Mahlodji guided the audience through the award show.
Dr. Andreas Ludwig commented on the Research Prize: “We awarded this prize for the first time in 1991. The original focus lay on the promotion of wood research and forestry. Over the years, however, technological growth has been so rapid that it has prompted us to give the Josef Umdasch Research Prize, like so many other things, a new emphasis.”
Until recently the prize was directed towards students. In October 2017, however, the ‘Call for Entries’ was addressed to international start-ups. “We therefore entered into a cooperation with a strong partner. With World Summit Awards, or WSA for short, we can reach precisely this target group in order to position our research prize on the international scene”, observed Andreas Ludwig.
The exercise was successful: 135 applications from Nepal, China, Sudan, the United States and elsewhere replied to the invitation.
Lagos – In the Marina district of Eko Atlantic City in the heart of Nigeria's business capital Lagos, the Azuri Peninsula is one of the most ambitious and spectacular residential construction projects in all of Africa. Doka is supplying the automatic climbing formwork systems and the technical expertise for three residential towers on this project.
The new Deichman library in Oslo's old port district
The Bjørvika district is a former port facility on the inner Oslo Fjord. It is now being redeveloped and the new Deichman library here is one of the most modern of its kind in Europe. When it came to the formwork for the extraordinary wrinkle-effect ceiling, lead contractor Skanska opted for know-how from Doka.
Aurora – the new signature building in Melbourne
In the city centre of Melbourne, Australia, the formwork solution from Doka and Lubeca is helping build the Aurora Melbourne Central, a luxurious residential tower with a design all of its own. The combination of Lubeca's platform system with the Doka protection screen Xclimb 60 tailored specifically for the Australian market enhances efficiency and safety in the construction process.
Doka offers special services, from the Ready-to-Use Service to On-site Pre-assembly
Round, angular, abstract, two- or three-dimensional – architects' drafts can be highly extravagant, so the need for custom formwork solutions and additional services increases all the time. The Doka Ready-to-Use Service manufactures the complex and individual formwork shapes that produce superior-quality concrete surfaces and ensure efficiency on the build. And specially trained Doka personnel assemble load-bearing towers and formwork units directly on site.
