Turner Uses Innovative Truss and Rail System, Self-performs Concrete Work in Seattle

The team deploys the truss system, which sits on a set of rails, and pours the concrete. As the concrete cures, Turner retracts the system and slides it along its rails to the location of the next pour.

The project team is using the truss and rail form system on the nine, 40-foot sections which create the station box. When that is complete, the team will move the trusses to the basement to pour 12 additional 40-foot sections, and finally, up to pour the 60-foot-wide, five-foot thick roof. Each 40-foot section takes about a day to pour and a week to cure and moving the truss assembly takes less than a day.

The highly mobile system, which condenses the overall scheduling for concrete pours and allows other trades to begin their work earlier, saves labor in addition to time as it can be deployed by smaller crews. The light-rail extension is scheduled to open in 2016.
