Megaproject in the Heart of Flushing, NYC

Dec 07, 2018
Tangram Plaza is a mixed-used development project covering more than 110,000 m2 in the heart of Flushing, Queens. ULMA has been a part of this megaproject from the beginning, provisioning comprehensive solutions for all types of structures.

This project includes the construction of 1,200 subterranean parking spaces, two residential towers with 220 flats, a Class A office building offering a surface area over 32,000 m2, retail space, and a hotel with 240 rooms available.

MEGALITE Modular Formwork was used to build the walls and columns. As with all ULMA systems, safety is fully integrated. The perimeter of the working area was surrounded by platforms throughout the entire construction process. CC-4 aluminium formwork, ideal for large slab surfaces proved ideal for building the main towers, the parking areas, and the commercial spaces. The 2,300 m2 of CC-4 panels were shored with MEGAFRAME and ALUPROP galvanised aluminium towers reinforced with bracing frames.

ULMA’s experience with this type of project in the US and throughout the world, with our demonstrated ability to provide a high volume of equipment according to schedule, was a critical factor in the client’s decision to rely on us for this project.
