  • Cost effective method for placing concrete
  • Ideal for irregular surface applications
  • Allows for easier material handling in area with difficult access
  • It is flexible and easy to install
  • Uses space more efficiently by allowing vertical excavation of alternated panels, creating stable vertical walls very close to other buildings
  • Saves money-can concrete right over the shotcrete
  • Can be more economical than other systems because of the ability to build maximum dimensions of the property and use the excavation as the form system.
