A radius concrete wall

A radius wall is an interesting twist on the regular, straight wall form. After making calculations we moved on to building the footings out of dimensional lumber.

With the steel rebar installed and engineer-approved we then poured the footings. 

Essentially massive moulds for concrete, forms must be able to heavy pressures in multiple directions. 

After making templates for the curves, we started building the forms. 

Standing up the sections of curved wall, layers of thin plywood are nailed on to create the curve.

After having to wait the out freezing temperatures in Vancouver, these walls have just been poured and we are in the process of removing the forms.
