Shopping del Sol Extension in Asunción (Paraguay)
Alsina’s Formwork subsidiary in Paraguay has been collaborating since 2015 in the extension of the Shopping Del Sol shopping center in the city of Asunción, in charge of the client JMG Construcciones, until its recent completion.
The extension of this non-residential construction, which was inaugurated last December, is part of a Master Plan that consists of 5 stages and includes the extension of the shopping center, the parking lot, the food court and the construction of an apartment building that should be completed in 2020.
The extension project involved the construction of a total area of 49,000 square meters, of which 30,000 m² belong to the shopping area and 19,000 m² belong to underground parking, making Shopping del Sol the largest shopping center in the Paraguayan capital.
The executive estimates that with this expansion the shopping center will receive about 600,000 visits per month, which would generate an increase of direct employees that would grow from 1,200 to 2,000 people in the entire commercial complex.
Alsina has supplied its Alulosas, Alispilar and Alisan scaffolding systems for the implementation of the project, without the need to design any customized products for the project given the versatility of its formwork solutions.
Alsina’s Alulosas system is a robust, safe and lightweight structural steel mechano system with a revolutionary duralumin tilting and a phenolic board-framing surface that is perfect for roofing, as it allows fast assembly and recovery of 80% of the elements three days after concreting. 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. It is a light but strong system, with quick and easy assembly and therefore very profitable, which adapts in all markets and types of works, so it has been successfully used in many projects around the world since its inception and is gaining more followers every day.
Completion date: 2017
