Project: New firefighter school in Würzburg, Germany
Owner: Bavarian State Building Authority, Würzburg
Contractor: Riedel Bau GmbH & Co. KG., Schweinfurt, Germany
MEVA System: Heavy-duty braces Triplex
Formwork Engineering: MEVA Formwork Systems, Stuttgart branch
A new hall is being built for Bavaria’s Firefighting School to meet modern demands in firefighter training – including a 70 x 40 x 30 m (230 x 130 x 98 ft) training hall, a fire simulation facility and a new vehicle hall.
Before the slabs and side walls are completed, the 21 m high walls need to be braced immediately after the pour and safeguarded against high wind loads. This is where the heavy- duty braces Triplex come in.
Triplex is a statically effective brace for formwork higher than 6 m. It does the same on finished wall slabs. Its lengths are flexibly combined to the height required, in this case to beyond 20 m (65 ft).

MEVA fulfils stringent requirements with flexible formwork solutions. The Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden is one of the Hungary’s most popular cultural attractions.
MEVA STB 450 offers flexible solution for narrow, inclined rail section: Near the municipality of Gretzenbach, the four-track route branches into two separate lines. Here, the two southern tracks gradually descend and pass below the cantonal road before entering the new Eppenberg Tunnel.
