Doka's tailor-made solution for safety issues at complex slab geometries and a lack of storage space on urban construction sites

Working on the Casa BFF job-site, with complex slab geometry, presented unique challenges, especially in maintaining the highest safety standards. To meet these demands, tailor-made protection screens with closing platforms were utilized. These screens can be repositioned with a crane, ensuring nothing can fall to lower levels, thus offering protection to the personnel below. The project also benefited from Doka's 3-ton loading platform, which were fused as set-down area for building material and construction equipment allowing the rapid relocation of materials to higher floors. More flexibility and ergonomics were achieved by deploying the Dokart system for transporting of Dokamatic tables to support the protection screen in certain areas of the slab. Additionally, the use of Framax 330x240 panels enabled the precise construction of aesthetically pleasing basement walls, demonstrating the project's dedication to both functionality and design excellence. This comprehensive approach combines Doka's innovative and customised solution, which ensured efficient material handling and high safety standards, thereby addressing the specific challenges of the Casa BFF construction site and similar projects.

"Our client required a cost-effective, yet robust protection system to fit for the the complex slab geometry. Also, given the restricted space at the urban construction site, there was an extra need for the additional material storage on the floors. So, dedicated Doka Italy team suggested the usage of 3- to Loading Platform for safe material storage and material handling on all floors. With the use of shifting device Dokart, slab-forming op­er­a­tions could be ac­com­plished even faster. We also developed a customized protection screen solution: a system of protection screens on the basis vertical and horizontal wailing, and capable of bearing loads even when there is no slab below. Dokamatic table was used to simulate the floor slab..“
