Slipforming techniques can bring time and cost savings, while retaining the high quality standards required in today’s market place, to projects such as service cores, towers, silos and bridge piers.
Delta Foundation utilises this system as it is one of the fastest methods of constructing vertical structures resulting in a rise of 7 – 8m per day on a (24 hr slide) and 3 – 4m a day on (day shift). This leads to reductions in construction periods and consequent cost savings when compared with traditional formwork or jumpform systems.
Slipforming can accommodate the most complicated structures and is not disrupted by adverse weather. Personnel are provided with a permanent safe platform to work off.
