On additional services offered by the company: Doka’s formwork services like consulting, planning and ancillary services help the customer to achieve effective implementation of their formwork assignment with the products commencing from project development, tendering, operation scheduling, execution and completion of shell construction. When Doka formwork engineers are brought in at an early stage of the planning process, made-to-measure formwork solutions for any such construction work can be developed jointly with the customer and these solutions match project requirements 100 percent, contributing significantly to end-to-end process optimisation.  


New innovations from DOKA: For the residential construction field Doka will be presenting a prototype of an innovation called Doka OneGo. As its name suggests, this new formwork system allows walls and slabs to be formed and cast ‘in one go’. It is suitable for use not only as monolithic formwork but also as separate wall or floor-slab formwork.

Among other things Doka has come out with panel floor formwork Dokadek 30; a new floor-slab formwork Dokaflex 15 which is a lightweight hand-set system for floor-slabs that are between 10 cm and 15 cm thick; the new framed enclosure Xbright; a new development for tunnel-building called DokaCC; and the new framed formwork Framax Xlife plus; wall system DokaBase and load-bearing tower Staxo 100 eco.
