Residential complex in Stuttgart: worker safety relies on SK 150 bracket

A typical construction site in the city: cramped conditions, large inventory of concrete formwork with no space to store it, ongoing changes to plans, tight schedules and difficult access to the site. But on this project, it was a seemingly small detail that made a difference. How do you pour a slanted roof over three stories without much special effort?

And how do you ensure worker safety around slanted building parts without building a separate scaffold? The MEVA formwork engineering team around Walter Schlumberger in the Stuttgart branch came up with a clever idea. 

To achieve the identical 50 ° slant over three stories, the mitre sill was done first before Mammut wall formwork panels were attached and tied using articulated corners. The inside formwork panels were attached via flange nuts to push-pull props and then adjusted to bring them in line with the 50 ° slant.

Brace bracket used to create safe working platform on a slant
Standard brace brackets SK 150 were attached to the outer formwork panels using flange screws. They were then aligned in position to create a level top area on which a safe working platform could now be set up without much additional effort. The same brace brackets were used after the pour on the finished slanted roof, attached with DW 15 tie rods. Here, too, they served as a safe hold for the safety and working platform. All the site needed to do was attach the planking to the level arm of the brace bracket. The fall protection was attached to the platform using railing posts and railing clamps 100.

The slant of the working platform is easily and accurately set using push-pull props SRL 120. 

“This simple but effective idea works really well as a safe and practical solution. Our team was very happy with it“ say the site construction manager Tim Danz and supervisor Karl-Josef Jung.
