Formwork and Shoring for Concrete Construction

Whyte’s restaurant built in 1910 gives way to new 30 story hotel, rising in the financial district

Dec 15, 2017
26 Ann Street (AKA 143 Fulton Street) is located across from the Fulton Center, a short walk from the World Trade Center, and is one of four large residential and commercial development initiatives underway along Fulton street.

26 Ann Street will house a 298 room hotel beginning on the 5th floor; the lower levels will include retail space, a restaurant and all the latest amenities needed for hotel guests. 26 Ann Street will rise 364 ft. and contain over 128,000 SQF.

26 Ann Street is expected to be completed by Spring 2018.

The customer, Structure Tech NY, selected ULMA’s CC-4 Drop head panelized shoring system to erect all elevated concrete slabs. The CC-4 Panel is the ideal system for construction of flat slabs with regular geometry. CC-4 improves worker productivity and promotes safety on-site, as the entire system can be installed from the ground. Another great feature of the CC-4 panel system is the reduction of plywood on-site as it is incorporated into the panel, a great feature for construction areas where space is limited.

ULMA’s complete solution package included ALUPROP aluminum post shores to support four working levels of the CC-4 panel system and concrete deck. ALUPROPS were also used to shore the first 3 levels as they provided the client with a wide range of shoring heights. For the re-shoring of the concrete slabs, ULMA’s EP Props were chosen to shore the four levels below the CC-4 panel system. ULMA’s MEGALITE, lightweight formwork panels were used to form, columns, walls, pilasters, elevator core and foundation walls.
