While constructing high rise buildings, it is important to use methods like slip-forming which can facilitate the rise in the framework at a good speed. With this method of construction, one can ensure a seamless flow of cement in building tall structures with great precision. One of the essentials when constructing such structures is the type of heavy lifting equipment that will be used for raising the frame work without a glitch. This is just one example of how lifting equipment can be used at a construction site.

During the previous week, we performed a successful launch of the steel superstructure for a bridge over Tunaån outside Borlänge.
According to plan, the bridge will be ready for traffic during June 2018.

Bridges are subjected to constant changes due to various factors such as loads, weather patterns and other types of stress. Bridges need to be constructed to move with environmental stress factors for avoiding wear and tear.

Bridges today have come a long way since the Romans figured out how to cross a wide river by just using timber. Bridges have become a valuable link between roadways and other transportation infrastructures, which allow travel and commerce to span greater distances for speed and efficiency.

As the construction processes continue to evolve, workers need to adapt to newer methodologies being used, several of which might involve utilization of heavy lifting equipment. But, regardless of old or new methods, it is highly important for workers to have a thorough knowledge about using these machines. This is important mainly from the equipment’s operational perspective. Effectively operating such machines can prove to be a contributing factor towards efficient construction processes. If you are a business who plans to use heavy lifting equipment for carrying out the construction of a structure, you need to be aware of few basic facts and tips that revolve around the use of the machines. The following points talk more on this subject.

Slipform construction method is the method of casting concrete by using a dynamic or moving framework system. This system ensures that the entire formwork keeps moving upwards steadily with respect to the pouring action. This method is known for its stability, especially when larger structures need to be built such as chimneys, silos, towers, etc.
