The ten floor institute building has been designed with fair-faced concrete concept having constraints of predefined surface patterns and in endeavor to achieve the same, D.Y. Patil relied on the wealth of
Doka experience in projects with fair-faced finish Large-area formwork Top 50 with Dokaplex plywood
was a right choice for casting varying heights of columns, lift-core walls & retaining walls while maintaining
right pattern not only in terms of plywood but also in tie-rod holes. Moreover, in order to remove the impressions of screws used to fix the plywood to the top50 frame special screw bracket were introduced
so that plywood can be connected from the back leaving no impressions on the concrete face. Moreover, Doka-OptiX, a specially designed release agent was sprayed on the formwork sheets to realize bright and low pore concrete surface. To cast the varying depth of slabs at height greater than 5 m, Doka proposed fielding the high-performance Loadbearing tower Staxo 40 system.
