J M Vassallo is recognised as the leading local supplier of steel reinforcement and structural elements in the construction industry. The company was established way back in 1969 and boasts of a history of substantial projects. The company structure is based on three companies which are JM Vassallo Vibro Blocks Ltd – this is the parent company and manufacturing arm, JM Vassallo Vibro Steel Limited which is the trading company and finally CMT Laboratories Limited which is the Quality Control and Mechanical Testing arm of the group.
Over the past decades, JMV has consistently focused its efforts on manufacturing and the local market has always been well provided with a very reliable and efficient supply of construction materials. The company operates from a massive 20,000 square metre complex in Zebbug with substantial investment in new and innovative steel processing equipment. These include: mesh welding equipment, rebar processing lines, and steel section cutting and drilling lines to cater for the local construction industry. The most recent investment involved the introduction of an EVG 3D Wall and Slab Panel manufacturing line used exclusively for the manufacture of the EVG 3D Construction System.
It has always been the group’s main objective to source materials of the highest quality available in the market and ensuring that they conform to the highest standards. The group also operates an ISO 9001 Quality and Traceability System.
JMV Group has built a sterling reputation throughout the years, particularly for quality products and reliability in production and supply, making the group the leading point of reference in the local construction industry. As suppliers to major local contractors, JMV’s products have been used in the majority of local projects, and has over the years collaborated with various reputable European companies.
The EVG-3D Construction System
The EVG-3D Construction System is a cost-effective construction system offering a well proven building method using high strength, load bearing modular panels. The EVG3D Construction System consists of panels with a layer of galvanised mesh on either side of an EPS core, welded together by galvanised steel diagonals (trusses) which penetrate through the EPS core. The panels are joined in the desired configuration on site and sprayed with concrete to form a sandwich type construction.
Strength and rigidity of the panels result from the diagonal truss wires welded to the cover mesh layers on each side of the panel combined with the concrete layers, thus ensuring the effective transfer of the shear forces for a full composite behaviour. Lateral forces are absorbed most effectively by the EVG-3D shear walls. The EVG-3D Building System provides a robust system that has a high resistance to hard and soft body impacts likely to be associated with normal residential and commercial use situations. The EVG-3D Construction System is expected to remain durable and serviceable for at least 50 years. All EVG-3D components meet the requirements of the relevant building codes and International Standards.
