A change in the layout for the core of the lower levels and the design of the core itself, which has three interior walls. This requires the use of Frami formwork on only three sides of the platform, and the Doka team had to ensure they picked the platforms balanced.
The contractor deemed the project to be too small to use a hydraulic climbing system and was interested in using a crane picked system, selecting Doka’s MF240 climbing formwork.
