Molded Fiber Glass Construction Products (MFG CP) has provided custom fibreglass forms for the recent renovations of the police headquarters in Kansas City.
MFG CP moulded 529 triangular, waffle forms that were engineered to create the architectural cast-in-place concrete ceiling in the community room. The custom forms were of two depth sizes (30in and 38in) and provided a dramatic effect in the suspended ceiling. MFG CP says the waffle forms are lightweight and economical to use, resulting in easier mobility as well as offsetting high labour costs.
The MFG CP team was awarded the project by CECO Concrete Construction. “We have worked on waffle-form projects with CECO Concrete Construction throughout the years. CECO has a long history in the concrete-construction industry. MFG CP is fortunate to partner with them in this project, especially since it’s so close to our entity in Independence, Kansas. Jarod Korf is the project manager in Kansas City for CECO and MFG CP is hoping to partner with him on future projects,” said Joe Kusiak, Sales Manager.
