Ltd, Vadodara, India Manage Design & Development COFFOR ( is a patented formwork system to build load bearing walls. COFFOR is composed of two filtering grids made of rib lath reinforced by vertical stiffeners. The volume used by COFFOR is 7 times less than the equivalence in bricks, concrete blocks or Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF).COFFOR is very light, can easily be carried by 1 or 2 workers. After COFFOR is placed, concrete is poured inside. Excess water is eliminated by gravity through the grids. The fluid concrete becomes semisolid decreasing pressure against the grids. COFFOR remains in the construction to reinforce it after the concrete is poured. Involve in developing Design & Development team & center for Coffor India. Converting conventional design into COFFORIZED design. Project cost estimation, techno commercial bidding & construction management. Project: Marco Polo, Dahej, Gujarat, India The purpose of the project was to provide a new plant facility to Chemical industries. Plant facility involved warehouse storage, production area, laboratory, pipe rack and an administration building.
