That’s a pretty common problem in the tunneling business where space is at a premium and where men and equipment keep a busy pace. EVEREST has been supplying the solution for many years in the form of its California Platforms. California Platforms ingeniously add another track to allow passing of rolling equipment and handle mucking or concreting traffic.
Linked together as one unit, the sections of the EVEREST California Platforms are mobile.
Resting on the concreted side of the tunnel, the platforms can be moved to the point of greatest traffic or against excavation. When it’s time to roll on with the work, air-bags raise the entire platform as one unit enabling it to be towed to its new position.
Solid steel members along either side of the platform support the heavy loads. Alignment pins on the end of each section keep the track aligned.The platform is equipped with a switch and ramp at each end.
Each California Platform is Custom built to your requirements, your tunnel and your satisfaction.
Everest supplied a custom formwork system and rebar gantry for a complex large diameter tunnel. In the design phase, Everest was able to provide innovative solutions and incorporate our ideas into their systems, ultimately saving cost and schedule on our project. Everest provided great engineering support along with on-site assistance as we used their systems during construction. The equipment performed very well and provided a product that very pleased the Owner. Everest stands behind their work and products and we look forward to using their systems on future projects.
Having used Everest’s custom steel formwork for two of the major tunnel infrastructure projects I’ve been involved with in North America, I’ve come to expect thorough and robust design, careful consideration of cyclability, and quality fabrication. They have earned their place at the top of my list of preferred steel formwork suppliers.
Michels Corporation has nothing but great things to say about Everest Form Carrier experience on this project. Everything from time of quote/ engineering, procurement, delivery, service and product, we had zero issues from start to finish with your product. We were very satisfied and met our production rates each and every week on the project.
More than 10 years of experience with Everest tells me that this is a trustable formwork company! Everest designs what contractors need, builds products that last, and services customers who are always satisfied. We are keeping Everest on our side to make us more successful!
We needed some custom shaft forms built in a short time frame. We quoted these forms out to other vendors but no one was able to meet our deadline. Everest took on the challenge and delivered before the forms were needed. Their staff is great to work with and they do incredible work for a reasonable price. If you are in the market for standard or custom concrete forms, I would definitely not look past Everest.
