The versatility of the Ischebeck Titan world leading formwork support and decking system has come to the fore on a very remote project in far North Queensland. A 1.2 Mega Litre circular all concrete water reservoir for the indigenous community in Mapoon asked a number of challenges of the build solution due to the remoteness of the site and the high frequency rainfall conditions common to this part of the world.
Renowned for its simplicity and speed of erection with just 2 or more workers, the Titan system was chosen for the challenging circular roof slab pour. The build consisted of :
- Titan HV Maxi Props with dropheads
- Titan Beams - primary and secondary
- Titan HV Panels for the decking that are faced with Iflon GRP
Importantly the Titan system was able to be inserted through the 900mm x 900mm access hole that was left in the roof slab for dismantling the formwork after the roof slab construction was completed.
Ischebeck Titan formwork representative Rob Sibley travelled to this remote site to oversee the formwork build and returned some weeks later to assist with the strip and dismantle.
