Colorado builder ASLAN Companies is using Octaform, a PVC stay-in-place concrete forming system, to build and finish the walls of AutoWash, a state-of-the-art vehicle wash in the Stapleton neighborhood of Denver.
The builder assembles PVC walls on site and fills them with concrete. The built-in finish eliminates the need for further cladding, protection, or paint and protects the concrete from the chemicals, moisture, and heat of a modern car wash. The watertight finish gives an unprecedented level of protection to the walls, thereby extending the life of the structure and reducing its long-term carbon footprint. AutoWash is expected to be open the first quarter 2013.
