Site Characteristics

The building site itself may influence the selection of a suitable forming system, because of site limitations and accessibility for
construction operations. The feasibility of using flying forms, for instance, is influenced by site characteristics, which include:

1. Accessibility to the site.

2. Availability of a fabrication area.

3. Surrounding area restrictions such as property lines, ad­jacent buildings, power lines, and busy streets. In open and unrestricted suburban sites, all forming systems are practical and some other considerations should be evalu­ated to determine the most efficient and cost-effective system. In downtown restricted sites, the only possible system may be ganged units that can be transferred from floor to floor.
