Dubai Electricity and Water Authority has completed building the water reservoir at Al Lusaily. The reservoir has a capacity of 450 million litres of desalinated water to improve and extend the city’s fresh water supply.
For MEVA KHK, it proved yet another succesful large-scale water project. The engineering team provided Ghantoot Contracting with design and formwork inventory for the columns, tank and baffle walls. Very fast pours to heights above 5 m were achieved with the heavy-duty formwork system Mammut 350 and its 100 kN/m² load capacity.
The next challenge was pouring hundreds of columns with large mushroom- shaped column heads. MEVA engineers developed, designed and produced special L-shape steels units in two heights to handle all the pours easily and fast. The solution proved cost-effective and contributed to a zero hitch workflow.

High, Fast, Safe: A state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical production plant is being built for the US biotechnology company Biogen, located on the grounds of a former paper factory in Luter bach near Solothurn, Switzerland.
One of the latest thrills: Float like a bird at a skydiving center, where an artificial airstream will keep you up in the air.
The solution: table forms, 5.40 m long to exactly fit into the openings between the columns. Short filler pieces with rounded edges provided a perfect match to the column layout.
