Doka lands contract for 300m Mumbai tower

15 May 12 Formwork specialist Doka has won a contract on the high-rise Lokhandwala Minerva building in Mumbai, India.

The 82-storey building will top out at 300m and have two separate towers standing on a 12-storey parking structure.

The tower is named Minerva after the Roman goddess of wisdom and the design, which comes from Hafeez Contractors, resembles an oversized letter M. The tower will be for residential use only and aims to be one of the most luxurious addresses in Mumbai.

Doka’s SKE50 and SKE100 automatic climbing formwork will be used for the core walls. Construction workflow will be optimised by splitting each core into two individual working zones. This is designed to increase productivity and guarantee a smooth work-flow.

Construction is scheduled to be finished in 2014.
