The pinnacle of our foray into complex cast-in-place concrete form systems, the Main Gulf Stream Tank at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science represents one of the most complex form systems ever fabricated in the United States. The premise of our system was to develop and fabricate a "kit of parts" that would easily assemble to create the complex curvature of the tank, integrate seamlessly with the six spindly legs that support the tank and marry into a standard shoring system familiar to the Baker Concrete team.
