For more than 20 years, builders of parking structures have predominantly used all-steel forming systems, which are mechanically set, stripped and moved. The key to these systems is a steel beam form, supported on high-strength shoring. The shoring frames are hinge-connected to the beam form, typically at a 10-foot spacing, allowing crews to swing the shoring system clear at stripping time without having to disconnect it from the beam. This facilitates movement of the beam/shoring unit as one piece. With deck panels supported directly on the beam system forming/shoring, all of the construction load can be transmitted through the shoring frame legs, requiring reshoring to be placed only under the post-tensioned beams. Using high-capacity lumber or steel shores keeps reshoring to a minimum, allowing freer access to the completed floor below.
