High Rise construction

Formwork solutions for your High Rise project

_Understanding your High Rise project as a partner

_Understanding the construction process truly and being knowledgeable about it is the prerequisite for being a partner to the building sector. We have this understanding from the initial planning stage through to completion of construction.

_Understanding such as this is based on 40 years experience in self-climbing technology and more than 1000 High Rise projects that were successfully realised worldwide. Construction of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the 1-km high Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia set to surpass it, are but two examples.

With this comprehensive know-how, we are well-qualified to be your high-performing and reliable partner in High Rise construction.


_Understanding requirements.

Sound advice begins immediately after the tender phase or a building. Because from this point on, it's all about cost efficiency and having a leg up on your own competitor. Which is why the our internationally experienced experts at Doka make a point of advising you very early, and very thoroughly.

Doka technicians work to put together the most suitable formwork solutions in combination with high-performing service packages, exactly tailored to each individual situation and to the requirements of the structure.

Regardless of how different and unique, one thing holds true for all High Rise projects: our commitment to the formwork solution has one common denominator — to design a construction process that is fast, safe and as good as it can be.

Building construction

Based on your project's unique requirements, Doka provides comprehensive solutions for all cast-in-place concrete components in your highrise project. This refers, in particular, to the areas of core, floor, props and façade. Load-bearing designs for façade construction support the subsequent systems.

Geometry of structure

The building's footprint and its development as it gains height are unique to every project. These geometric boundary conditions such as changes in wall cross-section or inclination and the resulting complexity, as well as the number of storeys, are crucial for selection of the right formwork systems.


Site infrastructure

Smooth and efficient construction process depends on a functioning site infrastructure. Good formwork solutions ease the workload, support concrete placement and provide a sufficient amount of storage space and load capacity.




The investment in formwork systems pays dividends. A solution customised to meet your project's unique requirements saves resources, as well as time and money. We achieve all this with quality-tested formwork systems and an all-inclusive project solution.

Safety in every sitation

We work with our customers to develop project-specific safety concepts. From operating and implementing the formwork to stair towers, safeguarding floor edges and enclosing the climbing scaffold.


Installation of reinforcement

On a core build, 25-50% of the time in a cycle is spent on reinforcement activities. With a formwork solution designed specifically for your project, you'll benefit from the following: a large workspace between the reinforcement and formwork, or additional working platforms that allow you to perform formwork and reinforcement activities in parallel and further advance your construction schedule.

Workflow planning

Observing cycle times – usually 3-5 days – has considerable impact on the progress of the entire project. Detailed planning of system formwork, commissioning quantities and personnel resources is critical for ensuring complete success.

_Understanding how safety takes you to the top.

Our modular system-based 'construction kit' offers the right climbing technology solution for the entire range of High Rise projects. No matter whether they are crane-dependent or crane-independent, what they all have in common is this: highest safety standard combined with ease and speed of handling.

_Understanding how to take a load off you.

We are happy to support our customers in any phase of their formwork projects. Because we are a single-source for products, services, planning, project management and logistics. This takes a lot of pressure off your site engineers and foremen and lets you accurately calculate the costs of the forming operations. _Understanding of all aspects such as ours is rarely found.
