UNIX Development is a construction company specializing in construction projects with unusual geometric designs. For the challenging façade of the coffee roasting house, they worked together with the concrete experts from Concrete Solutions.
Internal as well as external vibrators were used for the concrete compaction on this unusual façade of the new coffee roasting house. The reason for this procedure is the heavy demands on the surface quality of the wall. After the application of internal vibrators, the external vibrators were used to minimize air bubbles in the form lining surface as well as cavities in the concrete surface. This is a major challenge since the air bubbles tend to get caught in the slanting surfaces of the formwork.
To resolve this issue, UNIX Development, together with Wacker Neuson dealers, contacted Elite Motors Ltd., who are known for being a reliable partner. This is because a quick and unrestricted availability of equipment and support by the dealer on site was fundamental in order to ensure the quality of this special concrete façade. Due to the complexity of the concrete compaction at this construction site, Mr. Bakhturidze of Elite Motors recommended to bring the specialists from Wacker Neuson Concrete Solutions on board the project.
After a consultation with the concrete specialist, Mr. Rainer Wewers, it quickly became clear that this construction required a reliable compacting technology. In addition to the 12 AR26 external vibrators in combination with the SV4 fastening system, another two frequency converters were needed to guarantee the smooth procedure of the concrete pour.
The AR26 quality exposed concrete surface external vibrators with the fastening system SV4 proved to be the ideal addition for this difficult job. For a precise and high compaction task, especially with complex geometries of structural elements, the AR26 is exactly the right type of vibrator . The client, Capsulo LTD, was extremely satisfied with the result.
High compaction – maximum surface quality
The number and size of entrapped air bubbles on slant surfaces were minimized by application of the Wacker Neuson concrete vibrator. This way, the high surface quality demanded by the architects was achieved. This would not have been possible without the advice by Concrete Solutions and the external vibrators by Wacker Neuson.
The demand for internal and external vibrators will continue to increase.
"The construction industry is booming in Georgia" – according to George Bakhturidze, the local Wacker Neuson dealer, an increased demand in concrete and concrete compaction in Georgia is also expected in the future.
One thing is clear: For this, Wacker Neuson is your reliable partner; for a smooth construction process with a clear goal – first-class and unshakeable compaction.
