Slipform construction is a construction method for tall structures. The technique is similar in nature and application to jump form, but the formwork is raised vertically in a continuous process.
While the formwork grows upwards – concrete is continuously poured into a steel form. Forming, reinforcing and aftertreating are executed concurrently. As the concrete gradually cures, the slipform creates a seamless concrete structure in one pour from the bottom to the top. In general, the works are carried out in 24 hours shift rotations, but slipforming only during the day is possible, as well.
Our traditional slipform system uses hydraulic jacks or a combination of slipforming and heavy lifting systems where beams, tower cranes or similar are lifted together with the slipform. As most of our fleet is based mainly on traditional slipforming, we can deliver all components and equipment on very short notice.
