Civil engineering construction is a speciality of MEVA's. Our answers centre around a technically superior product and technology portfolio for large, high, expansive structures in infrastructure, bridges, tunnels, power plants, waterworks and the like. Many references show the support frame or our heavy-duty wall formwork Mammut 350 in action. Our engineers excel at finding creative answers to challenges that seem impossible to solve at first.

A special task force was formed at nearby MEVA Austria headquarters to master the complex concrete works and formwork challenges.
The wall formwork system Mammut 350 was chosen because of its symmetric tiehole and joint pattern and its standard all-plastic facing alkus.
Work was completed in just 15 concrete pours using more than 170 m² of Radius from the Leada Acrow fleet of MEVA formwork.
The architects demanded a superior concrete finish that was easily achieved with the panels‘ all-plastic facing alkus.

Planning, Formwork and Site Management: All Done and Delivered by MEVA
In 2000, MEVA was the first formwork manufacturer to use the pioneering alkus all-plastic forming face. While until recently not widely known in Ireland, alkus was welcome by Ascon and widely used together with the wall formwork Mammut at Ballymore Eustace.
MEVA wall formwork Mammut was chosen because of its load capacity of 100 k/N/m².
NEF National Enrichment Facility with more than 150,000 ft² MEVA wall formwork Imperial and MevaLite.
