No Time for Plywood Formwork Facing Decay

Joe Willis at WhiteCap Louisville knows: call MEVA for every concrete project with a tough schedule. As in
this case with WhiteCap client Hall Contracting of Kentucky. The heavy-duty Imperial wall system helped get the job done on time and within budget. On the Rough River Dam Spillway Improvements project the Imperial and the MEVA STB single-sided formwork were used to form the 26 ft tall baffle walls, the 16 ft tall single-sided walls as well as various other head and channel walls. Tough site and weather conditions made working difficult. Luckily, there was no plywood with rotting problems, since MEVA uses 100% wood-free facing.
