While the capabilities of the forming and shoring systems that Advance Shoring provides are market leading, the decades of experience in our design group is second to none. 

The contractor had previously purchased as set of Meva Imperial formwork from Advance Shoring and has been using it with great success for a number of years.  They recently contacted us to help with a formwork layout for a unique application on flood wall project in Cedar Rapids, IA.  Due to architectural form liner pattern, the contractor wanted the tie system layout to not penetrate the form liner, eliminating the need to patch holes to match the pattern, while still utilizing the formwork material that they already owned. 

Our design team at Advance Shoring was able to come up with a solution by adding a large steel beam...

After several recent severe storms, the Lakewalk on Canal Park in Duluth, MN has taken a beating from the powerful waves of Lake Superior.  The shoreline sustained heavy damage with large portions of the boardwalk completely washed out near the iconic Aerial Lift Bridge.  In an attempt to prevent further damage, the city of Duluth along with other government agencies quickly devised a plan to protect the shoreline.  The final plan includes an 11-foot-high concrete retaining wall that runs along the entire Eastern shore of Canal Park.  This new wall will stretch from I-35 all the way to the North Pier Lighthouse adjacent to the Lift Bridge, totaling over 2,500 feet long.  Most of the new wall will never be seen as only about 2 feet will be left exposed on the Lakewalk side with heavy rip rap placed on the lake...

Advance Shoring is excited to announce the addition of the MevaLite formwork system to their rental fleet.   The MevaLite system is a high-quality, light-weight clamp system for fast, crane independent project.  Often referred to as the little brother to the Meva Imperial system that Advance already has, the MevaLite system is constructed of an all-aluminum frame with the same 100% wood-free Alkus face providing extreme light weight and durability.

The MevaLite system has a high load rating of 1,350 psf that utilizes load gathering taper ties along with simple lightweight clamps for quick panel connections.  The panels are available in 24 sizes plus 1”, 2” and 3” aluminum fillers, all in imperial (foot & inch) dimensions.  The largest panel measures 3’ wide by 9’ high and weighs only 136 pounds.  Similar...
