Project Requirements

Formwork Construction Needed

The 72′ (21.9 m) long x 8′ (2.4 m) wide x 8′ (2.4 m) tall bridge caps are supported by two oval columns, which measure 22′ (6.7 m) to 45′ (13.7 m) high.

Irregular Terrain for Bridge Caps

Each soffit in the caps had a different incline, giving more than 200 different combinations.

Formwork Used

PLATE GIRDER®

E-Z DECK®

HAND-E-FORM®

Project Overview

New Construction To Reduce Heavy Traffic

The Santa Catarina highway overpass is an extension of the Monterrey – Saltillo Highway that consists of a 4.9 miles (7.9 km) overpass that will coexist with the Santa Catarina river. It is a partnership between the private and public sector with a total cost of $350 million. The main purpose of the project is to avoid heavy transit drives down the main streets of Santa Catarina country, avoiding damages and reducing maintenance expenses in the actual infrastructure. It will have an A4 design with two lanes in each direction, saving the drivers 20 minutes.

Customer Benefits

Irregular Terrain Conditions At The Jobsite

EFCO’s self-spanning PLATE GIRDER® steel formwork was ideal because of its versatility and its ability to meet the irregular terrain conditions at the jobsite, as well as produce an architectural concrete finish.

Optimization Of Form Alignment, Bracing And Reducing Amount Of Ties

EFCO PLATE GIRDER formwork panels can be bolted together into large rigid gangs

Safety And Productivity On The Jobsite

PLATE GIRDER panels can be bolted together into large rigid gangs

Fast Assembly And Cycling Times

The E-Z DECK shoring system was the best choice for supporting the shorter-height pier caps

With the help of E-Z DECK® posts and jacks, varying inclines and slopes were achieved by adjusting the jacks

Limited Crane Access | Formwork

The HAND-E-FORM® handset panel formwork system was best for its manageability to form the pier caps when there was limited access to a crane. It also easily adapted to the different inclines of the pier caps and gave the productivity the client desired.
