Not Only Product Quality and K3 But Also WIKA`s Concrete Pier Precast Formwork System Is a Spotlight in QSHE WIKA
President Commissioner of the Holding Company PT Wijaya Karya Beton Tbk. (WIKA Beton), namely PT Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk. (WIKA) Mr. Imam Santoso along with the Board of Commissioners conducted the QSHE Patrol in the work unit of the A.P Pettarani Makassar elevated toll road project on Wednesday, September 11, 2019.
Accompanied by the Operations Director of WIKA Beton I Ketut Pasek Senjaya Putra and the Director of Engineering & Development of WIKA Beton Sidiq Purnomo, this QSHE Patrol reviewed the product quality as well as occupational safety and health and environment (K3L) in the project work area. Besides that, QSHE also explored specific topics including the application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology, the implementation of Job Safety Analysis (JSA), to the Pier Head formwork technology innovation that was first implemented in Indonesia.
At this QSHE Patrol, Pier Head formwork technology innovation is a positive concern for management. Plate Girder (Aluma) system on the Pier Head formwork in the A.P. Pettarani Makassar Elevated Toll Project has a superior value compared to other mold systems on Pier Head products installed in other construction projects.
The Pier Head Formwork with the Aluma System on this project has the advantage of completing installation work which is 2 times faster than using the Shoring and Bracket System. If previously the Pier Head installation requires 32 days, the installation method using the Aluma System only takes 15 days because the Pier Head Formwork system can be assembled under and installed and facilitates the demolition of formwork.
Seeing the success of the performance of the formwork system, the WIKA Board of Commissioners asked WIKA Beton to file a patent for the Pier Head product formwork technology as applied in the A.P Pettarani Elevated Toll Project and implement it in various similar projects handled by the WIKA Group.
