A new hostel is being built on the premises of Pandit Deendayaal Petroleum University – one of the most significant universities in the West of India. For the nearly 2.90 m high walls, first of all a 25 cm high base is concreted with horizontally arranged DUO panels. For the second concreting section, the construction team makes an extension with 2 vertically arranged panels.
The low weight and the easy handling of the formwork enable the construction team to work very quickly. In addition, working almost without any tools is a significant advantage. This not only reduces the risk of injury but also prevents noise during forming operations.
“DUO helped us a lot to speed up formwork operations. Not only because the system components are very light. But also because it was extremely easy for our construction team to understand and learn how to handle the system.”

Once the 25 cm high base has been built, the construction team concretes the remaining wall height with 2 panel extensions.
