As the demand to build quicker and more cost effectively increases, precast lift shafts can have a direct impact on programme times, and indeed remove lift shafts from the critical path.
CCP can design, supply and erect all of the necessary components to create the precast lift shaft with a typical shaft being erected in no more than one day.
The lift shaft units are simply placed on top of each other with a dowelled connection between the units and are built up accordingly. Door openings and cast-in channels can be easily accommodated within the casting schedule. Lift pit slabs and lids can also be incorporated into the design.
Further benefits include:
- Reduction in co-ordination of many trades
- No scaffolding required
- No reliance on weather conditions
- Can accommodate virtually any size shape or configuration
When combined with CCP's Crosswall Construction, the entire stair core and lift shaft including the walls can be fabricated off-site and erected in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional methods.
