Higher productivity and measurable successes with innovative concrete-sensor technology
Construction work is in progress right now on La Luna, the 7-star luxury hotel set to become a new landmark in Azerbaijan's capital Baku. For the Doka Group this highrise build is another signature success in the Middle East.
With this acquisition the company takes another big step toward Industry 4.0 and into the future of the international formwork group from Lower Austria
Doka’s formwork expertise is currently in demand during the construction of one of the busiest motorway viaducts in Germany. The Lahntal bridge located in Limburg dates back to the early nineteen-sixties and is 400-metre long. Every day about 100,000 vehicles cross the valley of the River Lahn on the viaduct. Its traffic load has increased sharply, so a new bridge is being built sited just a few metres west of the old viaduct.
Doka forms exceptional fair-faced concrete core of the Palác národní (National Palace), Prague's new shopping centre and office complex
The Umdasch Group AG is a concern which is 100% family-owned and which has its headquarters in Amstetten. During 2015 it grew significantly once more and was thus able to demonstrate the success of its growth strategy for the fifth time in succession.
From April 11 to 17, Munich was again the centre of attention for the construction industry. About 580,000 people from 200 nations visited bauma 2016. 3,423 exhibitors from 58 countries displayed their products and abilities on the 605,000 m2 of trade fair grounds. And about 4,000 m² of that total gleamed brightly in Doka yellow.
At bauma 2016, the largest trade show for the building sector worldwide, the international formwork supplier Doka presents itself from an entirely new side. Aside from the new location with increased booth space, visitors find a modern fair concept that is close to builders and buildings: Doka Campus. On a nearly 4,000 m² booth on the open-air area north/west, booth no. FN.420, the formwork experts make one thing very clear: Doka is not only a partner in planning and implementing mega-projects but also a provider of ideal solutions for small and mid-size companies.
Back in 2011, Züblin started the first works on the Nordhavnsvej project for the City of Copenhagen and in 2015, the project entered its second major phase.
A one-of-a-kind cast-in-place structure is currently under way near Munich: the ESO Supernova Planetarium and Visitors Centre. The building's cubature takes its cue from a narrow double star system. The architecture of the construction project is characterised by inclinations up to 23 degrees and demands the ultimate in artful engineering from contractor and formwork supplier.
