Slip forming for Construction of High Rise Buildings
Construction of tall structures has changed over the years. With better technology and machines being used, it is now possible to successfully complete building complex structures. Slip forming is one of the most widely used and popular methods of construction and raising tall structures.
By using heavy lifting equipment, huge formwork is raised and then with the help of constant and uninterrupted supply of cement the structures can be raised at a great pace which can facilitate the construction of tall structures and launching of bridge. Following are some of the commonly found structures that are constructed with the use of slip forming.
Skyscrapers – High rise structures such as tall commercial centres and buildings are constructed using the hydraulic slip forming methods which facilitates construction of tall buildings at a fast pace. Once the form work and the structure is set up with the help of constant flow of concrete, one can expect fast growth in the building’s structures.
Steel Tanks – Steel tanks is another type of building that is constructed by using slip forming method. Steel tanks are a common sight in many commercial and industrial sites. They are used to store large quantities of water and alike, which are important for industrial purposes. The construction is done with the help of slip form methods. The walls of these tanks are raised at a good rate and thus the project can be completed rapidly.
Chimneys – Chimneys are built for industrial purposes so that the smoke can be let high into the air. These are tall, and the walls of these are constructed by using formwork and slip form methods which compliments the building of high rise walls.
Bridge Construction – One of the main aspects of slip form is the heavy lifting which is essential when constructing huge structures. Slip forming helps to build the formwork and thus with the help of quality bridge launching equipment one can construct a strong base for the bridge. With the help of good quality equipment, the installation of the formwork becomes easy and so does the construction of the bridge.
Finding a company that can provide good slip forming services and supply equipment which is of top quality is of great importance when constructing tall structures. Sweden based Bygging-Uddemann have been in this industry for many decades are known for being one of the most trusted companies selling bridge launching equipment amongst others services.
