Abstract

In tall building construction, the adoption of the appropriate construction method for the core structure process is critical in terms of both the structural aspect of the building and the schedule estimation. This study introduces a new core structure succeeding construction method (CSSCM) for tall buildings with steel-reinforced concrete structures to address the obstacles of the existing core structure preceding construction method (CSPCM) such as limited workspace, interference between activities, difficulties in wall and slab joint construction, and similar obstacles. The study also shows the technical details and compares the results from the applications of CSPCM and CSSCM to an actual tall building project. The results revealed that this method has potential as a cost-effective construction method for structural frameworks of tall buildings where short cycle times are required. In addition, the method provided stable working environments for the steel erection including outriggers and core works. This study will assist engineers and managers in applying the CSPCM construction method appropriately to similar projects and dealing with flexible changes in building design and engineering technologies.
