Shear Walls Innovation
In an effort to reduce project duration and provide VE cost savings, SSI proposed and successfully installed over 15,000 SF of 1 sided forms and then placed over 600cyds of 5,000psi Shotcrete to construct the perimeter shear walls for the new Air Force One exhibit at the Reagan Library. All walls were finished with a Steel Trowel and emulated a Class A Concrete finish in half the time and substantial cost savings. Note the #11 rebar in the columns. Pictures( right top) shows 1 sided form and rebar; (right below) shows the finished product.
