By Catrin Jones12 July 2022

A residential building project in Guadalajara, Mexico, has used Meva Schalungs-Systeme GmbH’s Meva32 shoring system to tackle the complex architectural design.

The Art Park features balconies with different geometries, heights and dimensions, as well as widely cantilevered flat areas that protrude from the building‘s walls. For their safe erection, the construction company said that they relied on the new Meva32 modular shoring system.

Meva says that this type of shoring system was developed for the US market but is increasingly conquering new regions outside North America where construction is carried out to US standards.

The ‘strong and flexible shoring system’ is said to be suitable for a wide range of shoring applications with the Germany-based company adding that it saves labour, time and space on the job site.

In addition, Meva says that the aluminium frame is very light despite its high stability. The 6 ft (1.82 m) wide frame modules are available in heights from 4 ft (1.21 m) to 8 ft (2.43 m). The typical 6 x 6 ft frame weighs only 49 lbs (about 22 kg), which means that Meva32 can easily be carried and used by just one worker.
