Upbrella Construction deploys the Upbrella high-rise construction patented technology that starts with the permanent roof under which successive floors are assembled and lifted into place all within a fully weather protected enclosure.
Upbrella consists of a weatherproof protective enclosure equipped with its lifting system, peripheral work platform and a range of project-specific materials-handling systems to optimize and industrialize structure and envelope works.
Upbrella enables faster occupancy and project delivery, better work quality and provides the safest work environment in the industry. Upbrella contributes to the greening of high-rise construction as follow:
- Significantly reduces the need for temporary heating during cold weather months;
- Requires no temporary set-ups and associated waste disposal issues;
- Recommends the use of hybrid floor structures (such as COMSLAB) to cut by 50% the quantity of concrete and rebar used and shipped to the site vs. conventional concrete construction;
- Implements a continuous work sequence that further help reduce on-site and site-adjacent traffic peaks and volumes.
