|Towering over southern Mumbai, the Sky tower is one of the most prestigious projects of developer India bulls.|
The Sky tower is 257m high, with 2 basements, 11 parking floor, 2 clubs, 2 transfers and 41 Residential/Refuge/Service. The main structural form consists of a reinforced concrete peripheral frame / shear walls with central core walls. The tower is having two transfer floors due to the different layout of parking and residential floors. Outriggers beams and walls have been provided at refuge levels, to connect the outer frame and central core, to improve the lateral stiffness. The core wall and staircase wall thickness is 600mm. The core walls are typically 6 linked through series of 900 - 1300 mm deep RC link beams. The link beam width typically matches with the adjacent core wall thickness. The heavily dense reinforcement does not allow the use of normal concrete. Self- compacting concrete (SCC) is therefore used for the construction.
|Building Height:||257 m|
|Number of Storeys:||58|
|Construction Time:||48 months|
|Use:||Luxury residential building|
|Products in Use:||Platform SCP, Framed formwork Framax Xlife|
Space restraints solved
|A great place to work: Doka’s automatic climbing platform SCP protects circumferentially, providing a safe working place and efficient formwork operations.|
Indiabulls benefits also from the assurance and reliability, maximum safety, time efficiency of fast assembly, and full technical support from engineering staff round the clock. The formwork inside the platform consists of 480 m2 of Framax Xlife-panels, which stand out for their high number of re-use cycles and smooth concrete surfaces.
The site crew is quite enthusiastic about the safe platform SCP, which helps eliminating the fear of heights, making life much easier for the workers and protecting man and objects from falling down. With the platform, the complete core zone climbs ahead of the following storey floors. “De-linking” the different building components in this way speeds up work and improves productivity.
