Back to slipforming overview

High-rise construction

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.


High-rise cores

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.
