RediCor®, manufactured by Nucor Vulcraft/Verco Group, is a factory-built, ready-to-set modular steel form system that is designed to simplify and speed up the construction of reinforced concrete stair and elevator core structures. Our service core construction system is an example of how this method of construction is already transforming the construction methodologies of today. And, as a system produced by Nucor Vulcraft/Verco Group, you can be assured that it has the full support of Nucor behind it.
Reinventing Vertical Reinforced Cores
Conventional vertical reinforced concrete shear cores used for the primary lateral structural support have always presented challenges for building construction projects. Long and unpredictable onsite construction timelines are usually required prior to commencement of the main building framing. Also, quality issues frequently result from concrete dimensional tolerance variances, and improperly located steel embed plates necessary to receive steel framing connections to the shear walls. In addition, jobsite safety is adversely affected due to the fall exposure risk created by the conventional construction approach for these concrete structures.
What Is RediCor®?
The RediCor® Modular Steel Form System is a factory-built, ready-to-set modular steel form system that is designed to simplify and accelerate the construction of reinforced concrete stair and elevator core structures. Once concrete is placed and cured, this stay-in-place structural system allows for support of metal stair flights and landings, structural framing, scaffolding, personnel, and other construction loads. The stay-in-place forms do not require stripping, adding two inches to the shear wall width. The factory is currently tooled to produce forms with finished walls, after concrete placement, structurally equivalent to traditional CIP concrete walls of equal thickness.
This innovative construction approach incorporates the higher level of quality and efficiency provided by a specialized factory manufacturing environment, thereby reducing jobsite labor resource and schedule needs. Also a higher level of jobsite safety is provided through the elimination of the fall hazards inherent in vertical concrete formwork construction methods.
RediCor® celebrates the art and craftsmanship of building. Our dedicated steel fabrication division specializes in architectural metals and thrives on challenging design. We enjoy architecture and take pride in the abilities of our steel craftsman to bring reality from design.
