R-WALL the versatile Formwork

Another R-WALL build poured and complete. This is a first time build for the developer and he's done a great job.

If you browse through the photos you will see how he has stepped from a 212 core (retaining) to a 159 (non-retaining) as he comes out of the ground. Poured all in one go. Maximising space and saving on concrete costs! This versatility comes from a non-modular ICF system. These walls not only form the retaining wall but also the main structural walls of the home. You will see the waterproofing on the below ground elements.

Also note how RSJ Steels are set in the gable, placed inside the formwork reducing thermal bridging. The main RSJ running the length of the building has been set through the formwork internally prior to pour and supported. An alternative method would be post concrete pour by forming pockets. Easy!

Build better, Build R-WALL!

Thank you for introducing R-Wall and its versatility in formwork solutions. The ability to create curved walls with ease is impressive, especially in architectural projects where aesthetics and functionality are equally crucial. The potential time savings and reduced material waste also make a compelling case for its use.

I'm intrigued by your mention of R-Wall's environmental benefits. Could you elaborate on how using this formwork system contributes to sustainability in construction, particularly in terms of reducing carbon footprint or promoting reuse of materials? https://www.stlouisretainingwallscontractor.com/
