Civil Works Construction

Edytesa has an extensive experience in carrying out different kinds of civil construction.

However, it is in the execution of bridge piers and pylons, with more than 5,000 m already produced, where the main advantages of using the formwork method can be taken in advantage of:

  • High execution speed, with slipform rise rates which can exceed 5 m/day
  • Systematization of tasks, reducing the time of assembly and disassembly
  • Reduction of auxiliary equipment and site safety.

Additionally, both piers of constant section and piers of variable section (2 or 4 sides) can be built following this system, in the same way as the simultaneous lifting of auxiliary equipment, especially when it comes to bridge piers of great height.

Within the great diversity of hydraulic works carried out, we´ve discovered that many of them could have been done using the slipform system, since, apart from the innate advantages of using this system, the sliding formwork of these structures is carried out without any construction joints, a fundamental characteristic for any project related to water, piping, storage, etc.

The rate of slipform rise in surge tanks, which can even exceed 100 m in height, easily reaches 4 m/day when this construction technique is used. In the case of dams, the most common applications of slipforming are found in cofferdams, galleries, floodgate towers.

The slipform system is used in underground works, either hydraulic works or any other kind (tunnels, mines, etc.) in the coating of wells.


  • Viaduct piers.
  • Tall bridge pylons.
  • Coating of wells.
  • Surge tanks.
  • Ventilation towers.
  • Dams and cofferdams.
  • Working deck lifting, formworks, lintels and other elements.
