Doka UK, January 22, 2018.- Skyscrapers are one of the most suggestive constructions. Authentic challenges for engineering, execution and safety always attract the attention of construction professionals. A 200-meter skyscraper seemed a significant culmination a few years ago. However, there are already projects that multiply this figure by five. Something unimaginable in the twentieth century, but by the year 2045 some commentators are expecting the first mile-high skyscraper, a dream, a utopia, we’ll see. In the construction of skyscrapers, you need competitive solutions to make them a reality. And in this, Doka has much to contribute after decades of innovation. In this article we take a look into the tall buildings of 2017, reviewed by The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).

UK, November 3, 2016.- 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.
