Alsina Formwork will give the conference “Shoring Criteria and constructive recommendations in the design and implementation of concrete structures” at the University of Granada on November 5.

The lecture, given by architect and Alsina´s Formwork technical and training manager Jordi Gracia Leache, will bring together 40 structures master students and professors from the University of Granada and will focus on offering the essential tools and knowledge so that the phase of setting and stripping structures is carried out under optimal safety conditions both for the workers and for the structure itself.

Thus, the lecture program will include issues such as underpinning calculation and structure´s shoring and stripping control according to the current regulations (EHE-08), the different types of formwork and construction procedures (EHE-08 Guide), loading phases on struts and slabs, the explanation and conclusions of the research project carried out by Alsina and the UPV (STC Calculation Software) and its applications along with a detailed underpinning study, as well as constructive recommendations to be followed during the implementation of the structures.

Alsina believes that sharing the knowledge and know-how of its employees and collaborators is an intrinsic part of its values and its way of understanding the profession and its corporate social responsibility, and that is the reason why for several years the company has been collaborating with Universities and Professional Associations around the world offering several conferences and training activities related to the formwork field by its experts, collaborating in the dissemination of news and training for the continuous improvement of the sector.
