Climbing systems: Getting it right for every project

Contemporary architecture is dominated by ever higher buildings and ever more complex geometries. The success of such projects depends to a large part on successful optimisation of the construction process. In the field of high-rise construction, the decision for the appropriate climbing system has a huge impact on time and cost. As a result, diligent operations scheduling is of crucial importance in order to find the optimal formwork solution. Factors such as cycle time, construction method, type of reinforcement and site equipment must be taken into account during the planning phase. […]

‘New but Old’ Maturity Method of Measuring Concrete Strength (and Part 2)

Doka’s Concremote product and data driven service conforms to all of these International Standards and the Concremote sensors measure simultaneously the in-place concrete and ambient temperatures and time and compares this real-time data against a known calibrated concrete mix results and raises real time alerts when the required in-place target concrete strength is reached. Facilitating the optimization of on-site production activities […]
