The Regalia Sunny Isles Beach Condominium in South Florida is going up at a rapid pace because Doka’s Super Climber self-climbing form system allows crews to cycle vertical and horizontal formwork. Inside and outside forms can be hung from the system’s gantry, which allows the contractor to roll forms away from or toward the formed walls while erecting and stripping. All operations can be carried out safely and quickly on the formwork’s large, fully enclosed workspace, because the climbing formwork system is anchored to the concrete at all times.
