First time Doka's framed formwork Frami Xlife users learn the ease of assembly.
This project is a recycling and waste disposal facility. Frami Xlife was used to pour the walls of the tipping floor and truck entry/loading tunnels of the recycling building. The interior walls of the tipping floor were in partially lined with a steel plate. Forming the concrete walls, was accomplished in two different ways. At the loading wall, the steel sheets where predrilled to match the tie hole pattern in the forms. The second method for each of the wing walls required embedded studs cast into the wall so that the steel plates could be plug welded after wall placement. The contractor was very pleased with the results, quality of drawings, the ease of assembly and ease of moving the forms. This was the first time Keystone Concrete had used Frami Xlife and after a short orientation, were successfully using the system with no additional on site assistance.
