Slipforming use in urban high-rise construction has increased significantly in recent times as an alternative to climbing formwork. Speed, efficiency and absolute work safety are what matter most, especially in cramped urban environments.
The ever-increasing extreme specifications regarding construction times are bringing about a renaissance of slipforming in urban high-rise construction. Compared to established climbing formwork approaches, slipforming has many major advantages, especially regarding construction times and the greater decoupling of processes.
Today, it has become a standard practice to lift concrete placing booms, cranes and more along with the slipform formwork. The closed deck and scaffolding create a safe and comfortable working environment for all workers involved. High-rise projects in urban settings are increasingly being carried out in 12h per day shifts to avoid undesirable construction site emissions at night.
