In late December 2011, the first rail shipment
of sand left from a new, state-of-the-art sand
processing plant in western Wisconsin. This
was the first of one to three weekly trains
that would transport sand, processed from a
nearby sand mine, to multiple locations in the
Lewis Construction, based in Schofield, Wisconsin,
was the contractor handling construction
of the sand mine. Owner Steve Lewis,
who had often utilized Symons® by Dayton
Superior® product solutions over the years,
approached the company again to provide
forming solutions for the project.
Symons by Dayton Superior’s Sym-Ply forming
provided a perfect solution. Sym-Ply’s ability
to easily and quickly connect to Steel‑Ply
allowed for no delays in the placement of
forms. The contractor was also able to avoid
purchasing fractional wall ties by using taper
ties to easily adjust to the different size batters.
More than 3,700 square feet of Sym-Ply was used to form 100 lineal feet of tapered
and battered wall.
“The forms went together easily and the clamp
connections made for fast gang assembly,”
said Todd Masephol, Concrete Superintendent
for Lewis Construction.
