Aurora Estate Melbourne Acrowall-60 Acrowall 60 formwork ‘impressive’ says client

At the Aurora Estate on Melbourne’s northern fringe, a new community is about to be born. Set along the edge of an existing waterway, a culvert was needed to provide road access and protect the new estate from flooding, while at the same time preserving local wildlife such as the creek’s community of frogs. Acrowall 60 formwork helped make it happen…and ‘wowed’ the client in the process.

“Acrowall 60 is a versatile, lightweight and cost-effective formwork product. It was perfect at the Aurora Estate, where the panels – each 2700mm x 750mm and weighing just 60kgs each – could be manually handled or simply built into large crane-handled assembly for fast movement on site,” explains Acrow Project Sales Representative, Shayne Cairns.

A unique construction, the Aurora Estate culvert will act as a dam should the creek ever flood and as such, it features very high, long wing walls.

“Even at heights of 6.5 metres, such as on the Aurora culvert, Acrowall 60 is quick to erect because of the size, shape and weight of the panels.”

Shayne says another advantage of using Acrowall 60 is that it does not require the purchase of LVL and ply.

“Plus, when you hire from Acrow you have access to immediate professional support and advice from our expert team, which can save a lot of time and money.

And here’s what the client thought…

Brasher Constructions was engaged to build the Aurora Estate culvert. We were humbled to receive glowing feedback – not just on Acrowall 60 but also on our service delivery – from Managing Director, Ron Brasher.

“Having chosen Acrowall 60 as formwork for the Aurora project, I was very impressed with the way it goes together to achieve a height of 6.5 metres with a 500mm wall thickness.”

“After more than 30 years in the construction industry, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Acrow for all formworking jobs. They are a professional outfit – from their sales reps to their truck drivers to their admin team. Thank you Acrow. I look forward to doing more business with you.”
