Everglades Water complex
Located in the South Bay (Florida), the Everglades water complex began construction in January 2021 and is now in its final stage.
This project consists of several structures to channel South Florida’s water supply from Lake Okeechobee. The complex includes 21 sewer stations – each 8,000 square feet, 3 pumping stations, and 1 dam wall that is 22 feet tall and about 7,500 square feet in area.
Alsina USA has provided more than 35,000 square feet of formwork solutions, as well as technical support for the planning of the pouring phases and the continuous changes in the site considering the specific challenges of each structure and the products that have served to advance the construction site.
Alisply is the recoverable formwork system for concrete walls, designed to be handled with a crane. Thanks to its reinforced steel structure, modular panels with large surfaces (3 and 6 m2) are achieved with minimal joints between them. This allows a finish on the wall without excessive marks.
The Vistaform system is a traditional formwork system for exposed slabs, made up of structural wooden beams, supported by support elements such as props or falsework. Both shoring systems are height adjustable. The system allows the distribution of the beams and their propping, according to the weight of the slab to be executed. Thanks to its great versatility and flexibility, it has facilitated the meeting with walls and hanging girders by being able to overlap the wooden beams with each other.
