Traction Room was engaged to construct an insitu concrete valve chamber with 130m2 of wall face, and a large thrust block for the newly installed rising main at the Waikato Water Treatment Plant
The valve chamber was constructed with a Doka formwork system, with walls 4.0m in height. A complex reinforcing design was required with cranked vertical bars and a high concentration of links and trimmer bars to penetrations.
The thrust block was 25m3 of solid concrete, encapsulating the new rising main. Traction Room supplied and executed their own temporary works design at short notice as the client did not have time to procure a proprietary system.
