Project: Coop logistics centre in Schafisheim, Switzerland
Contractor: Marti AG, Bauunternehmung, Zurich
Bauherr: Coop Genossenschaft, Basel
Formwork engineering: MEVA Formwork Systems, Seon, Switzerland
Retail trade corporation Coop is building a new logistics headquarters encompassing five new buildings, a space of 240.000m² and 1,5 Mio.m³ building volume. It is Switzerland's largest private construction project. The largest single building is the production and logistics centre on 14 levels. Alone the excavation has a 300 x 100 x 25m layout. Contractor Marti from Zurich is using MEVA formwork to complete concrete works, including the wall formwork Mammut 350.
Ganging just once saves time
Thanks to the Mammut 350's panel size range, it was possible to complete 4.15 m pours with just one extension, saving considerable assembly time.
Unlimited pour speed up to 4 m
An additional time saving was achieved by the Mammut 350's high load capacity of 100 kN/m², which allows an unlimited pour speed up to 4 m - irrespective of concrete type and ambient temperatue. It climbs on 100 foldable working platform KAB 190 and climbing platforms KLK 230. The formwork panels are set-up on the KLK using a carriage which allows the formwork to be stripped and retracted safely. The formwork solution allowed the cores to climb climb one level per day.
The slabs in the high bay warehouse rest on prefabricated columns, 13 m high and weighing 15t. They were supported by 10m heavy-duty brackets Triplex-R.
The site is confident in maintaining the tight schedule up to completion.

MEVA STB 450 offers flexible solution for narrow, inclined rail section: Near the municipality of Gretzenbach, the four-track route branches into two separate lines. Here, the two southern tracks gradually descend and pass below the cantonal road before entering the new Eppenberg Tunnel.
MEVA's StarTec and Radius wall formwork played a starring role in the construction of a 20 m tall, plant-shaped viewing tower, built by the shore of Lake Velence, south-west of Budapest.
The focus of MEVA's first collaboration with Austrian company GLS was nature conservation and the construction of two fish passes on the River Traun.
