The Challenge

This was a challenging project as it demanded a number of concrete pours and the use of a circular formwork system to form the curved walls. Two of the tanks were 7m high and 17m diameter and the third one was 5m high with a radius of 20m.

The Solution

This was our first project using MEVA’s new state-of-the-art circular wall formwork system Radius. Suited for all round walls from a radius of 250cm upwards, it has a sturdy 6mm steel facing for a superior concrete finish. Radius was very quick and easy to assemble and the work was completed in just 15 concrete pours using more than 170m2 of Radius.

The Results

Although the finish was not specified as architectural, the cast concrete was of a very high quality and the striking of the formwork was a simple process.
