About our Common Towers

A temporary, multi-purpose structure tied to a high-rise building during construction, common towers enable all hoisting facilities to be arranged around and tied to it

When using common tower systems, only the common tower itself is tied into the main structure, providing a common access area for all trades and goods, whilst reducing the need to leave openings for access elsewhere on the building façade. Hoists can then be attached to all three of the open sides of the tower and many common towers also incorporate an escape staircase.

Working with a common tower

With minimum interference to the programme of works, common towers allow for the transport of materials and personnel to optimum working heights and can be used for structures as high as 300m.

Why A Common Tower?

  • Contractors need efficient and fit for purpose access solutions more than ever before due to the reduction in build programs.
  • According to the 2018 London Tall Buildings survey, there are now 510 towers in the pipeline for London, of which 458 are marked out for residential use.
  • The number is will continuously climb over the years. 
  • Projects can be completed faster, without compromising quality - common towers and hoists make the construction of high-rise structures more efficient in terms of cost, time and money and greatly improve building logistics.

  • One concentrated area Hoists and temporary staircases positioned in just one concentrated area 
  • Efficiency Work such as cladding can be carried out more efficiently on the entire envelope of the building 
  • Multi-task Allows for fit out of the lower floors to commence earlier as the building is being constructed
  • Optimise use of floor heights Rapid fit outs enabled as the tower/hoist system allows contractors to fully exploit floor level openings and optimise the use of the floor heights when distributing cladding and installing prefabricated pods 
  • To your requirement Deck level can be set either flush with the slab level or above it depending on requirements
