Special Formwork has designed and supplied a number of different solutions for lining deep shafts. The shaft forms generally comprise steel forms mounted on ‘compression trusses’ with stripping panels and turnbuckles, to enable the shaft formwork to be struck lifted and re-set as a single unit, thus minimizing costly crane operations. The forms can incorporate integral working platforms.
Completed Projects include service shafts for Amsterdam Metro and shafts for various drainage projects throughout the UK.
Special Formwork has designed and manufactured this new system for casting a very large sea wall. The formwork is mounted on a hydraulically powered traveller. All functions are controlled by wireless remote control
