EFCO del Peru Supplier of Shoring and Formwork
In recent years, EFCO del Peru has been involved in the construction of most of the country’s shopping centers, being the main supplier of shoring and formwork for this type of construction. The foregoing is the result of the high capacity and versatility of the E-Z DECK® shoring system, and the HAND-E-FORM® formwork system is used for the construction of beams, plates and columns. EFCO’s involvement in the construction of three shopping centers: Mall Aventura Chiclayo, Mall Aventura San Juan de Lurigancho and Real Plaza Cusco Expansion are a testament to the confidence bestowed by the market to EFCO products. Information about each of these three construction projects follows.
Mall Aventura Chiclayo
Location: Lambayeque – Peru
With an investment of about 182 million Soles over a land area of 527,500 ft² (49,000 m²), the new Mall Aventura de Chiclayo is being erected at the crossroads of the North Panamerican Highway and Avenida Circunvalación. This project is expected to be the largest in the northern part of the country when complete.
HV Contratistas S.A., the contractor for this project, chose to partner again with EFCO based on good results they had in the construction of the Real Plaza Puruchuco Shopping Center and their past positive customer service experience. The construction was distributed in one basement plus three upper floors. The PRO 4® shoring system was used for the single-height ceilings and E-Z DECK was used for the double-height ceilings. In the case of the columns, the EFCO LITE® system and the HAND-E-FORM system were used.
Mall Aventura San Juan de Lurigancho
Location: Lima – Peru
Over the past five years, De Vicente Constructora has been working closely with EFCO in the construction of different kinds of shopping center projects, educational buildings, and warehouses. EFCO’s experience and knowledge along with the versatility and efficiency of its various systems make it the most competitive solution on the market in terms of double-height construction. Now De Vicente and EFCO are working together on the construction of Mall Aventura San Juan de Lurigancho. This project consists of a slab and beam shoring solution for “Front 3” of the mall, which is approximately 35 percent of the total construction work. Plus, about 43,100 ft² (4,000 m²) of ceiling formwork was contracted with EFCO. The customer recognizes and likes that EFCO’s engineered solutions are designed with a minimum number of parts per square meter of roof space compared to other shoring systems on the market. EFCO’s formwork solution for the slab used support from the beam shoring for slabs with lengths up to 13′-2″ (4 m) between beam faces without having any intermediate floor support. All of this is due to the high capacity of the E-Z DECK posts together with the E-BEAM® and Z-BEAM®.
Ampliación Real Plaza Cusco
Location: Cusco – Peru
Construction of the Real Plaza Cusco Expansion was awarded to a consortium formed of three companies Grupo 5 S.A.C., Delgado Lira S.A. and Constructora Mech S.R.L. These three companies chose EFCO to supply formwork and shoring for multiple reasons. One of them was the location of the warehouse for dispatching equipment, as the work was in Cusco and EFCO del Peru has a satellite warehouse in the city of Arequipa. This shorter distance, compared to other companies that had their warehouses in Lima, substantially reduced back and forth transportation costs for equipment. Besides location, the three customers understood the benefits and advantages of E-Z DECK® shoring systems in terms of productivity. ◊
