Pier formwork


A series of support piers for an extension of the Amsterdam main railway station

Columns with a height of 9,2m and a ground section of 3,3m x 1,15m. It was decided to pump self-compacting concrete from below because of the specific situation:

  • A perfect fair-faced finish had to be achieved
  • Huge quantity of steel reinforcement
  • Big pouring height
  • Small opening on top
  • Concrete pressures over 200kN/m²
