Over the last decade, weather events including tornados, floods, wildfires and hurricanes have become more intense. This new reality of superstorms calls for more durable, resilient building materials such as precast concrete.
”Over the years, we’ve worked with Hamilton Form on a variety of large projects and have always taken advantage of their technical expertise and knack for designing formwork for production efficiency. To produce a quality product, you need quality forms, and that’s what we get from Hamilton Form.”
Clayton Sembler President CDS Manufacturing, Inc. Quincy, Florida
“When I call Hamilton Form, I know I’ll get forms that are easy to set up, cast in and strip. I’ve come to depend on
Hamilton Form for highly complex, highly efficient formwork. Plus, they deliver on time and within budget, which makes for a winning combination.”
“Hamilton Form delivered a series of forms that are both functional and efficient.
Twelve self-contained forms were unloaded, leveled, mounted and ready for production in three days with a small crew. Their knack for simplifying complex projects has benefited us many times over the years.”
Ralph Schwarzer Manufacturing Manager Unistress Corporation
“Formwork has a significant impact on the success of a project. That’s why we use Hamilton Form.
Over the years we’ve worked with them on a number of projects. They’re true partners; experienced, reliable and always fair.”
David Malaer General Manager Valley Prestress Products, Inc.
Valley Prestress Products was recently awarded a contract for the prestress products for the Copano Bay Bridge in Rockport, Texas. The project includes 460 54-inch cylindrical piles with a 42-inch voided center, ranging in lengths from 83 feet to 168 feet.
The round piles were a new product for Valley Prestress. A new bed, forms and an efficient production process needed to be developed to produce the new product.
Valley Prestress installed a 520-foot bed, staging and curing areas to produce the piles. Hamilton Form fabricated the cylindrical pile forms with a hydraulically actuated interior void and two-piece headers. The two-part outer form was designed with integral hold-ups and hold-downs to keep the void in place during the pour. Production is running smoothly.
