Alsina participates in the construction of the Clariant residential project in Numbai (India)
The project: residential building in Mumbai
Alsina’s Formwork delegation in India started in 2017 its collaboration in the construction of a prestigious residential development promoted by Lodha, the largest promoter in India.
The Lodha Clariant project, which is scheduled for completion in 2018, consists of the construction of two basements of 6.000 m2 each and an 8-story tower of 2,000 m2 per story in a project covering a total of 350,000 square meters in the city of Mumbai.
Alsina: fast and efficient solutions for building
For the implementation of the project, Alsina has supplied its Alisply Manual formwork systems for the construction of retaining walls, columns and the elevator core, as well as 3.000 m2 of Mecanoflex for the implementation of slabs and VCM beam formwork system to implement the ceilings.
Thanks to the use of the Alsina systems, a good optimization of the formwork is being achieved due to the rotary use of equipment, as well as a good working pace and a good fair-finish, which has pleasantly surprised the customer, which is the third one that has decided to use Alsina’s Mecanoflex system in the country and the first one to use the VCM beam formwork system.
Alsina’s Mecanoflex system is an ideal system to adapt to any type of perimeter, since it solves merging hanging beams without any problem thanks to its flexibility. It is also a very versatile and easy to assemble system, which allows high performance.
On the other hand, Alsina’s recoverable Friendly Beam VCM (Modular Hanging Beam) system is the only recoverable formwork system designed specifically for hanging beams forming that allows to recover up to 80% of the equipment within 72 hours after concreting. This is a metal system with easy assembly that solves the problems arising from the use of timber and non-recoverable formwork beams, composed of elements made of reinforced steel frame and phenolic surface. With this new system, Alsina helps to achieve an orderly, safe and cost-effective process when shuttering beams, since it is designed to reduce the time and improve the quality of the formwork and stripping of the beams.
