Formwork and Shoring for Concrete Construction

Special MK solutions to meet the deadlines in Mission Hospital, NC

Jun 21, 2018
The Mission Hospital Health System, based in Ashville, NC is ranked nationally as one of the nation’s top 15 Health Systems.

The Mission Hospital is North Carolina’s sixth largest hospital and the only non-profit hospital located in western North Carolina. The new 12 story, 600,000 square foot building includes the Advanced Medicine Center.

Project demands and deadlines were a key issue for the client. To meet the client’s demands ULMA project managers and engineers developed a large “flying” table that could be moved and cycled through the job site to reduce labor time while improving productivity for the customer.

The Mega VR table flying form table measured 15 feet by 38 feet and is based on ULMA’s versatile MK system. The Mega VR tables increase job site productivity as tables could be quickly moved into position in preparation for pouring concrete. They are easily stripped in preparation for the next shoring phase of the project thus reducing crane time needed. This was the ideal solution for this project.

The Mega VR tables were assembled on site. Ease of use, increased site productivity, quick cycling of equipment and direct onsite service were the key to this project success.
