Customer Benefits

  • Versatile solutions allowing precast caps on the ground while also being able to mount forms on the column to be cast in place when needed
  • Proven experience, built over decades—experience that only EFCO offers
  • The end result was a consistent architectural concrete finish

 

The choice of EFCO as a supplier was motivated because they managed to solve the need to have the minimum number of construction joints for this large water tank, the EFCO solution of large formwork assemblies was the option that allowed me to speed up the work as I have never done before. I found innovative the EFCO Rugged Tie with its tapered body that eliminated the need of placing and later removing the PVC sleeve. This together with the EFCO Rubber Plug eased the repair of the tie holes. Plus, the concrete finish resulted from using the EFCO forms was something that we really liked. I would definitely use EFCO for my next project.
