Rethinking formwork requirements

Premiere for wall concept
The process of designing and constructing the vertical louvre walls required a good deal of subtlety and ingenuity. "As this is the first time our company has built a wall of this kind, it was very difficult to predict the required effort," explains Züblin site manager Heiko Wagner. "But thanks to MEVA's support, it's been a very successful premiere." ­MEVA's engineers started by converting an undimensioned initial sketch from the tendering procedure into a detailed 3D model showing the exact angles, niches and spacings.
