Formwork and Shoring for Concrete Construction

MK Systems at South Beach Psychiatric Center in Staten Island

Apr 20, 2017
South Beach Psychiatric Center, like many of the residences and businesses in the Ocean Breeze neighborhood, was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

The new 232,000-square-foot five-story building will replace the center's 47-year-old building that was flooded during the hurricane. The proposed building will include updated flood prevention measures to make it more resilient from future storms.

The building is a steel frame building, apart from the building’s foundation and cores which are being poured with concrete using ULMA’s MEGAFORM forming system. The proposed building is 5 floors high and contains 6 cores.

The building consists of two types of cores, a standard rectangle and a 5 sided polygon. The walls of the cores are 12” thick and formed using MEGAFORM. ULMA’s BMK climbing system in conjunction with the KSP flipper platform, in the center of the core, are used for added walkway safety and easy form stripping.
