Abstract:
The structural frame of a 25-story condominium apart-ment house was constructed in 35 days as a result of com-bining slip-formed bearing walls with precast prestressed floor beams. Construction details, slip-form loads, and floor inserts are described briefly. The use of a climbing crane with its loads, coupled with critical path method, show interesting results.
