The Agora Mall construction site is located in the heart of Santo Domingo where Abraham Lincoln Avenue and John F. Kennedy Avenue converge. The eco-friendly mall, slated for completion in early 2012, is the country’s first building to be LEED certified. It has been designed to realize a 40% decrease in energy consumption and up to 40% in water usage. Spanning 120,000 square meters, the mall will offer a 1,800 space parking garage, a food court, a number of sit-down restaurants, a movie theater, entertainment park area and more than 180 retail shops. Once finished, it will represent an investment of $100 million U.S.D. in Santo Domingo’s economy
The Agora Mall construction project, among the largest in the Dominican Republic, was on an extremely tight construction schedule. Requiring considerable equipment needed during construction and nearly 500 laborers on site each day, the project demanded precision scheduling and coordination. To assist in the coordination of construction progress, the contractor wanted to use equipment and materials they were familiar with to save time and money on the job site.
Imbert Dominguez turned to the product solutions of Dayton Superior and Symons® brand to help them in maintaining their demanding schedule. Dayton Superior provided Aztec® Castle Chairs, Clean StripTM J1 EF form release, Bar Lock® and B12A 15mm threaded bar along with Symons brand FormRight™ for the structure’s vertical walls, Steel-Ply® forming system for all the beams and conventional shoring. In addition, Ace Forming (a distributor of Symons by Dayton Superior products out of Puerto Rico) supplied Symons FrameFastTM shoring and aluminum joists to support the building’s beams. The products were used in the construction of the mall and the attached parking garage.
“We would like to thank Danny Durazo and the Dayton Superior and Symons by Dayton Superior team for the outstanding service we received, which undoubtedly contributed greatly to the final outcome of the project. We have enjoyed our business relationship with this team and look forward to using your equipment in future projects,” said Eduardo M. Dominguez-Imbert, Owner of Imbert Dominguez.
