Large-Scale Residential Expansion

MEVA is involved in one of the biggest residential expansions of The Ohio State University in recent history. 11 buildings are being demolished and 10 new ones erected along the north stretch of campus near Lane Avenue and High Street. Eight of the new buildings will be dorms. The overhaul will add 3,200 beds to campus. It’s part of a plan that will require sophomores to live on campus. The goal is to keep students connected to campus after Large-Scale Residential Expansion class. Contractor Messer Construction Co. chose MEVA’s formwork expertise in managing the tight schedules and complex logistics involved in running the site while student activity goes on as normal.

The stair and elevator cores are being climbed with heavy-duty Imperial wall formwork on the climbing platform KLK 230. Work flow is kept smooth thanks to the formwork’s all-plastic facing alkus. It ensures a constant highquality concrete finish from the first pour to the last, first time, every time. It is also easy to clean and repair on site. Columns rely on the light-weight, hand set MevaLite aluminum wall system which is easy for one worker to set up by hand. It, too, is equipped with the same all-plastic facing that is standard in all MEVA products across the globe and has proven its quality now since 2000.

    South Canal Bridge, Ontario: With no crane possible at busy Hwy 400, MevaLite handles the job with ease

    One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.
