The building will house 298 hotel rooms, starting on the fifth floor, while the lower storeys will be dedicated to a variety of commercial establishments. The client chose CC-4 modular aluminium formwork to pour the slabs for all of the building’s 30 storeys. The system’s drop-heads make it ideal for spaces where safety requirements are exacting;moreover, rapid material recovery reduced onsite material needs as well as dependence on crane assistance.

With lightweight components built from the ground up, the CC-4 system allowed for rapid and efficient onsite assembly. With plywood shuttering already incorporated into the panels, the system offers significant advantages for work in confined spaces.

ULMA Construction provided a comprehensive solution that successfully met all of the client’s needs for the walls and floor slabs. ALUPROP aluminium props were used in conjunction with CC-4 formwork to support four working levels simultaneously. ULMA’s lightweight MEGALITE panels were used to form thecolumns, walls, pilasters, lift cores, and foundation.
