Project Overview

Procurement Partner – Why Trust Anyone Else? 

The joint venture of Kenny-Kraemer NA was the engineering procurement and construction contractor chosen through a best-value procurement process. It is essential to minimize costs in your procurement process. Still, it is also vital to identify suppliers who can provide the quality of goods and services that your company needs and who have a record of delivering reliably. Kenny-Kraemer NA chose EFCO. Why trust anyone else? 

Customer Benefits

Setting and Stripping Formwork Monolithically 

The 86’ long x 9’ wide x 12’ tall pier cap relied on the capacity of SUPER PLATE GIRDER® formwork for the soffits to support the placement of approximately 1.4 million pounds (635,029 kg) of concrete and rebar. EFCO also provided pier stem formwork that allowed them to pour the 7’ and 8’ diameter piers up to 62’ monolithically.
