DYWIDAG Post-Tensioning Tendons for a new Project in the Center of Veracruz: The Villa del Mar

In the center of Veracruz on the east coast of Mexico, the Villa del Mar project is under construction. The block of buildings includes a 180 room hotel, a 12 level, 11,400m² office building and a 3 level, 23,000m² shopping center. In addition, the Villa del Mar has 4 subterranean parking decks.

For the project, the floor slab was longitudinally and laterally post-tensioned using Monostrand Tendons, 0.5", G-270 K.

DYWIDAG Bar Tendons were installed in recesses in the floor slab formwork. Following concreting, the precast supports were placed on these tendons and connected by force-fit.

The supports, stiffening girders, load-bearing girders and double T beams were produced using precast concrete elements and placed on site. For this project, DYWIDAG Systems International Mexico supplied 17,800m of 26mm Ø, G-150 K DYWIDAG Bar Tendons as well as Type 20-0.5"  DYWIDAG Strand Post-Tensioning Systems and accessories.
