Alsina participates in the construction of the reserva del parque residential in Medellín (Colombia)

The project: Residential construction in Colombia

Alsina’s Formwork delegation in Colombia has started its collaboration in 2018 in the construction of the Reserva del Parque Residential Complex in the city of Medellín (Colombia).

The project involves the construction of two 29-story apartment towers, with a distribution of eight apartments per floor and a surface ranging from 59m2 to 79m2; as well as the construction of a 5-storey car park building, assuming a total of almost 20.000 square meters of slab in its execution.

The residential complex is very well located, being two blocks from the main park and close to all educational institutions, hospitals and commercial and industrial areas that are located in downtown Itagui.
In addition the residential will also have common areas such as heated adults and children’s pool, sauna, Turkish bath, gym, children’s play area, social lounge, five synthetic soccer field and a pet area.

Alsina: practical and safe solutions for residential construction

Alsina has supplied 700 m2 of its Mecanoflex formwork system with A-30 Post-Shores for the implementation of the project.

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, the range of A3 Post-Shores (A30-A35-A40 Post-Shores) is formed by the only releasing post-shores in the world that comply with the EN 1065 European Standard,  certified by the prestigious German institute Sigma Karlsruhe GmbH.

These belong to the new Class A Post-Shores generation with quick release and integrated safety systems that bring new and significant technological improvements to the market with a weight of only 26,45 Ibs (12 Kg).

This is a safe (provided with anti-separator cane) and resistant system, since it manages to combine the lightness of the traditional Spanish Post-Shore and the high strength of high quality steel, as well as being very cost-effective thanks to its releasing system that guarantees a lower material wear an tear by use compared to traditional systems.
