Formwork Used


    Customer Benefits

    • Pre-drilled EFCO PLATE GIRDER®
    • Self-spanning Bridge Pier Caps
    • Minimal re-work during cycling

    For this project, EFCO provided a forming system for 14 pier caps that allowed for efficient cycle times. The caps were built and able to be cycled from cap to cap, allowing our crews to meet and exceed production times. For the larger pier caps, the pier cap formwork was designed in a manner that allowed crews to efficiently strip, reassemble, and reset the formwork. The familiarity with EFCO’s forming system and the design for each segment of the pier caps provided our crews with the most efficient and safe system.
