DESCRIPTION: 

The project involved the construction of a large basement  podium Slab with 2No. RC Frames. The frames consisted of a 9 storey  (South Block ) and a 19 storey (North Block ) RC Frame.

Due to difficulties and programme slippage experienced by the Client with there Ground works package it was decided to use Slipform to both North & South Core wall Cores  to recover some of the lost time , this involved Major Temporary works schemes to both Cores .

Due to the very limited laydown areas  we used table formwork system for the Floor Slab Construction these Tables were assembled off Site in our Yard in Welwyn Garden City.

The Stairs were Pre-cast off Site and delivered to Site as required, this also helped ease the Site congestion and help accelerate the construction process.
