The History of Highrise Construction.

Highrise Construction was formed in 2003 by Steve More and Mike Speck to supply a Climbtrac Jumpform system to Macrennie Construction for the Columbia Apartments project. Later that year they started their first Labour package. The concrete, formwork and precast placing contract for Mainzeal Construction on the new East Stand at Mt Smart Stadium. Since then Highrise have completed several similar contracts for various contractors as outline on our projects page.

Highrise contracts have involved either or a mix of full Labour and Material, Labour only and Formwork/Labour supply packages. Highrise have considerable experience in both In-situ and Pre-cast construction methods. Highrise owns substantial stock of Climbtrac Jumpform System some coming off the recently completed Precinct Apartments. Climbtrac is an Australian designed purpose built crane handled jumpform system.

Together with Boxer Engineering (The Australian designers of Climbtrac) Highrise can offer complete packages including Formwork design and Engineering, Shutters, System Assembly, Site installation, Supervision and operation including all Labour. Alternatively we could offer the Design, System supply and initial supervision with the main contractor providing their own Labour. In addition to the Climbtrac System we hold a stock of Ischebeck System Slabform, a Falsework/Formwork System from Germany specifically designed to construct in-situ slabs and was also used on the Precinct Apartments.

With over 60 years combined construction experience between Steve and Mike, their day to day involvement in all projects together with our site Foreman, leading hands and skilled work force we feel by using Highrise Construction as the main contractor is getting a good mix of Practical, Technical and Man Management skills to ensure any project we take on is completed Safely, Efficiently and to a quality expected.
