Alsina participates in the construction of a residential building in Barcelona (Spain)

The project: residential building in Barcelona

Alsina Formwork began in 2017 its collaboration in the construction of a residential building on Bolivia street in the city of Barcelona (Spain), very close to the well-known Agbar tower.

This building project, which will be completed in 2018, consists of the construction of a building of 16 apartments, with a basement and 9 stories of a 500-m2 area per floor. Its insitu construction structure is formed by 25 + 5 lightweight waffle slabs, with a free height of 3 meters between them.

Alsina: versatile and safe solutions for building

For the implementation of the project, Alsina has supplied its Alumecano formwork system, (500 m2 story’s formwork plus 2 propped stories) as well as its Alispilar and Alisply formwork systems for the implementation of the space dedicated to the lift.

Alumecano is a re-usable formwork system for the implementation of waffle slabs with permanent coffer, one-way concrete beams and solid slabs. Alumecano only uses 3 basic components (Girder, Support Girder and Drop head) including the revolutionary new Drop head made of duralumin (structural aluminum), which makes it light and resistant for the support of the formwork surface. This system allows to recover a large part of the used equipment (100% of the Boards and 50% of the Struts) 72 hours after concreting, without the need for re-shoring, so they can be used elsewhere, making it a very profitable formwork system.

On the other hand, Alispilar is a formwork system designed by Alsina to significantly improve the pipeline and work method for the implementation of standard columns in building projects. This is a light but sturdy system that is quick and easy to assembly and that due to its phenolic plywood and chamfer strips (to smooth the edges) provides a high quality concrete finish. This is a very profitable system and adapts to all markets and typologies of projects, so it has been successfully used in many projects around the world since its inception and it’s gaining more and more followers everyday.
