When Alta Pump Company asked an architect
to design a partially underground storage
building for a hillside location, the architect
came up with a plan for an arched, mono‑
lithically poured concrete structure able to
withstand the weight of the soil.
When Alta Pump contacted Symons® by
Dayton Superior for form design recom‑
mendations, Symons provided drawings for
formwork that combined the Steel‑Ply and
Flex‑Form forming systems, with the Symons
Soldier Beam in a shoring appliction for this
Comprehensive drawings provided by Symons
showed the form layout and included details
about connections between the systems.
