About the Company

Consorcio Redram – Tucumann

Redram, founded in 1974 of Brazilian origin, is dedicated to the development of various types of national and international concrete construction projects, such as airports, energy, urban paving, civil construction, special art works, roads, sanitation, bridges and port construction. In turn, Tucumann, also of Brazilian origin, founded in 1990, is an expert in the development of large port and airport infrastructure projects and industrial works.

Details of the project and system used

Salaverry Port Terminal

The Salaverry Port Terminal Project consists of modernization, rehabilitation, installation of cranes, construction of storage Silos, maneuvering yard, etc., as well as ensuring the terminal operation lasts for a period not exceeding 30 years.

Developing – Planning – Scheduling – Completion of the Formwork Solution

Optimizing Construction Costs

This time, the consortium gave EFCO the opportunity to plan and develop the projects for the formwork solution. First, it was necessary to provide a radial formwork system that would form the curved concrete sections. When assembled, the formwork section would result in a large volume and capacity silo to be used to store grains. Second, they needed formwork for concrete columns of variable and irregular shapes and dimensions for their warehouses. Third, they needed a formwork solution that would optimize construction cost for forming the concrete tunnels, which would enable massive emptying of the silos in less time.

More than a Concrete Formwork Solution

Curved Concrete Wall

The solutions offered by EFCO suited the project well. Starting with the REDI-RADIUS® system, which was chosen by Consorcio Redram – Tucumann, as their first option. In comparison to the competitors, the REDI-RADIUS system requires less parts to assemble and the steel face sheets leave a smooth concrete finish. EFCO supplied 17 sets of REDI-RADIUS formwork that formed a curved concrete wall that was 35′-6″ (10.80 m) long x 10″ (0.25 m) wide x 8′ (2.40 m) high.

Column Formwork

Next, 10 sets of PLATE GIRDER® steel panels were supplied to form the columns. The PLATE GIRDER high-capacity formwork system is recognized in the market for its maneuverability and the quality fair faced concrete finish it creates.

Tunnel Formwork System

Culvert Traveler Formwork

For the construction of the tunnels, the BOX CULVERT® system was chosen. The BOX CULVERT traveler formwork system made inverted “U” shaped concrete shells in lengths of 24′ (7.20 m). The system is easy to assemble and cycle, speeding up productivity.

Satisfaction Success with EFCO Solutions

Future Partner on Future Projects

Consorcio RedramTucumann was quite satisfied with the EFCO solutions provided and expressed its satisfaction of wanting to partner with us again on future projects. ◊
