New Tower Awarded
United Forming receives an award from Houston Texas based C.F. Jordan Construction, L.L.C., for the concrete formwork construction services for 2800 Weslayan. The gleaming new residential tower is located in the Inner Loop West area of Houston, Texas.
2800 Weslayan features 250 fashionable apartments accompanied by a vibrant 3,000 sq-ft fitness center, an exhilarating amenities plaza and secure, private parking in its attached seven-level parking garage. The residential tower is a stately 40 stories tall with an average floor area of 15,000 sq-ft per floor. Architect, RTKL Associates Inc., and Structural Engineer, Brockett Davis Drake Consulting challenged the plain, big box concept by putting forth the striking high-rise design with offsetting curvilinear balcony edges that create a graceful sinuous façade.
United Forming will be a key member of the construction team responsible for constructing this tower within the high production schedule demands of a floor a week cycle. To support this production, United Forming will be utilizing a series of truss framed forming tables for the elevated deck formwork.
Site and deep foundation work began in December 2012 with United Forming’s construction of tower pile caps beginning in early 2013.
