MEVA runs special facilities dedicated to developing and manufacturing special formwork designs and special solutions for architectural jobs all over the world. And the MEVA engineers running them have won international acclaim for exceptional answers to demands that, very often, seemed impossible to master at first. Take a look at the Merseburg and the UEB Vienna architectural concrete projects with their spectacular geometries and convince yourself.
MEVA portfolio: your benefits
Special designs and facing
Special forms are made from steel, wood and combinations thereof.
Special Forms with MEVA profiles in steel and aluminium
The combination of system and custom-built parts or modification of standard parts often proves a cost-effective solution when the formwork is re-used often. The MEVA clamp saves time and labour as a connection between custom-built and system parts, especially for

MEVA: Your single source solution provider
Custom-built wooden forms can be technically and economically feasible for between one and five pours without re-facing. This often applies to very complex geometric shapes. The focus is on feasibility, buildability, cost-effectiveness, work flow and the desired concrete finish. MEVA specialists support you in all questions around logistics, handling, work flow, static calculations,
concrete pressure and transport.
Concrete shaped to almost any design
The all-plastic, 100 % wood-free facing alkus can be bent and shaped to realise even exceptional concrete shapes and forms. Concrete finishes of any shape can be realised in this way,
from sharp angles to curved walls all the way to large surfaces without a single joint imprint.
Fields of application
“We could not have handled the pillars without the detailed 3D modelling and instructions provided by the MEVA engineers“, says foreman Matthias Unglert.
New Jumeirah Village Circle complex being built with MEVA solutions: Several multi-storey complexes with up to 1,000 units are being erected.
To achieve the architect’s idea of architectural concrete in the staircase, MEVA engineers developed a special formwork design with the all-plasticfacing alkus.
A railway tunnel with high demands: MEVA formwork is used to pour the retaining walls, concrete beams and tunnel portals at both tunnel entries, plus bridge abutments and piers close to the southern tunnnel entry.
One challenge was pouring hundreds of columns with large mushroom-shaped column heads.
The challenge facing MEVA engineers was translating the architect’s 3D model into a buildable and realistic plan in the first place.
