Slipform construction is a construction method for tall structures (such as bridges, towers, buildings, and dams) in which concrete is poured into a continuously moving form. The name refers to the way in which the concrete is poured: Concrete is continuously poured into a plywood form which rises in a continuous, slow movement. The concrete form is surrounded by a three-story-high platform on which workers stand, placing steel reinforcing rods into the concrete and ensuring a smooth pour. Together, the concrete form and working platform are called the "slipform," which is raised by means of hydraulic jacks. Generally, the slipform rises at a rate of between 2.5M – 3M which permits the concrete to harden by the time it emerges from the bottom of the form
A Balance between minimising costs while maximising construction methods, providing cost savings to the customer through time saving delivery
MPB’s directors are constantly investing and developing in technology to deliver faster safer construction methods.
Slipform systems enable MPB to apply this method to structures that vary in design and complexity, tapered profiles, openings, embedment’s and wall thickness reduction are all achievable.
Slipforming is a fast construction method for constructing Vertical structures achieving between 2.5M – 3M per day.
