As part of the Aarhus harbourside development project in Denmark, Naylor Technical Solutions Novoform was supplied to create the formwork required for groundbeams.
Novoform is a light and rigid, easy to handle and durable encapsulated wire permanent formwork system. It provides a professional and cost-effective replacement for traditional formwork systems such as timber or blockwork.
Buildings that had fallen into disrepair were demolished as part of the re-development of the Aarhus harbour area. The ground was piled with concrete piles and the groundbeams were required to form the main foundations. Naylor Novoform, which was branded as Hydraform, was supplied as groundbeams, L-shapes and flat panels. As part of the Aarhus harbourside development project in Denmark, Naylor Technical Solutions Novoform was supplied to create the formwork required for groundbeams.
Naylor Technical Solutions did the take-off drawings for the project. The panels were supplied pre-formed ensuring no waste was created, saving money on site. Further savings were made by using semi-skilled labour as the permanent formwork system does not require skilled labour or specialised training to use. There are no formwork removal costs after concrete is poured.
