One of the best ways to promote a new product in the heavy construction market is with a job story. This is especially true when its being used by a well-known contractor on a high-profile project.
Precasteel’s Stay-In-Place-Fascia-Forms (SIPFF) met these conditions and more on two bridges at a LaGuardia Airport terminal replacement project in New York. With Walsh Construction and Skanska USA, operating as the Design-Build Joint Venture of Skanska-Walsh as the customer, this was truly the big stage for Precasteel.
These forms are the invention of Gary Dinmore, P.E. This is a highly technical job story based on how these forms were used to support the deck and barrier pours, but you will also find some interesting discussion on how his time in the U.S. Special Forces and on major New York infrastructure projects led to the invention of Precasteel.
This job story was published in many respected regional and national construction magazines. Click here to check it out in Civil+Structural Engineer.
