Timber engineering plays a crucial role in construction projects, and Uni-span can assist with timber engineering solutions. Uni-span has a fully equipped timber engineering workshop for the construction of custom-made formwork elements.

Uni-span has a fully equipped Timber Engineering Workshop for the construction of any custom-made formwork elements. The Vario system is used to create special formwork structures that can be adapted to suit all geometries and requirements, e.g. tie positions or acceptable fresh concrete pressure. It is possible to construct any shape or size of formwork with various finishes – smooth to rough, special patterns or detailed off-shutter finish.

If there is a structure we cannot do ourselves in the workshop, we have a long-term and trusted relationship with a custom supplier. Our design team uses specialised programmes to create special formwork structures that can be adapted to suit all geometries and requirements. We can create and construct any shape or size of formwork with various finishes. Trust us as your partner.

We use this system as project formwork in commercial, industrial and residential construction for particular architectural concrete parts or bridge abutments and retaining walls. Contact us today on 011 462 8965 to find out more about our expertise in timber engineering, including our engineered timber products and the benefits of using them in your next construction project.

Project experience includes:

» Loftus Park – Elliptical wall
» Heineken Brewery – various circular structures
» Du Pont Pioneer, Delmas – various shaped and sloping beams
