ULMA Construction 2018-05-11

Saving time and space with the pre-assembled HWS

The Provost Square project in New Jersey (USA), the panels have been pre-assembled at ULMA facilities, optimising their size for transport and increased efficiency in situ.

In New Jersey, USA, there is a growing demand for luxury apartments to rent. In response to this demand a new residential complex was built in Provost Square. Its location makes it especially attractive, given its proximity and easy access to Manhattan.

The complex is composed of three buildings. The first, called The Morgan, was designed with 417 flats on 38 storeys, with a ground floor measuring 4,880 m2 destined for commercial use, along with a car park of 371 spaces.

In order to ensure a safe working area, the building perimeter was covered with self-climbing HWS protectionThe system is made of panels that envelop the storey under construction and three storeys below, equipped with a hydraulic system used for raising the assembly as construction proceeds upward.

The assembly measures 13 m in height and 3.6 m in width, with different configurations possible: as a purely vertical protection system or with an added working platform for material handling. The panels were covered with reinforced netting to prevent falls of people and objects of any sizeto protect the slabs under construction from wind and inclement weather, and to allow the entry of natural light.

To minimise assembly work on-site, the panels were pre-assembled in the ULMA facilities in New Jersey. They were designed so as to be of optimal size for transport while being wide enough to offer an efficient building solution in situ.

The vertical structures, such as the core for stairwells and lift shafts, were built with the lightweight formwork MEGALITE, operable without crane assistance.
