It is often heard being said that world is getting smaller day-by-day. Matter of the fact is, the world is getting taller and bigger every day. Field of construction is no more limited to just four brick walls. With the evolution of technology, now there exist various state-of-the-art machines that are extending the reach of civil construction. Gigantic marvels are being built all over the world with the help of humongous machinery. Building bridges that can withstand enormous loads and buildings that breach the limits of the sky is possible because of the in heavy formwork method.
Formworks are the moulds into which strengthening material such as concrete can be poured. These formworks are either temporary or permanent, depending on the structure. Sometimes the formworks are built on the site of the construction, whereas often it is required to transfer heavy structure to a site. These formworks are made up of different types of materials suitable as per the type of structure. Materials such as timber, plastic, aluminium, stainless steel and concrete are used in constructing either prefabricated or build-on-site formworks. There are different types of formworks that are used.
Enormous structures such as bridges, towers or tunnels sometimes require prefabricated formworks to be transported to the site. In order to support the extreme loads these constructions have to bare and the harsh conditions they need to sustain require extremely strong formwork. The work of heavy formwork transportation requires to be done with impeccable precision. It needs the expertise that can only be earned through years of experience in the field. Albeit the construction work has been a bit simplified by the advent of the machineries that can lift extremely heavy loads, operating one of these machines is not an easy task.
There are various methods of transporting a prefabricated formwork as per the terrain of the construction site. Post understanding project requirement and evaluating various aspects of a construction process, then only one should consider which heavy lifting supply is needed. Techniques such as caisson launching is the utmost efficient method that is used to transfer heavy structures in water. Other methods, for instance, horizontal and vertical transfer of formwork are implemented when one requires to transfer heavy loads on the land. It is very easy to regulate the capacity of the load as per the project requirement.
There are quite few leading companies in the field of civil construction that provide heavy formwork transportation solutions to their clients. Bygging-Uddemann is a well-known company in Sweden that has been considered as one of the top construction solution providers.
