Paramount Tower

Miami, Florida

Jobsite picture of highrise project

Paramount is a signature luxury condo tower part of the 27-acre Miami Worldcenter development. The 60-story tower, on the north side of downtown Miami at 700 N.E. 1st Street, will have 512 units atop ground-floor retail. Due to the large size of the main core on the building (29’-2” x 71’-0), Doka proposed pre-assembled Top 50 wall formwork with Super Climber to support construction of the main core. The combination of formwork solutions allowed the main core to be completed ahead of time, and removed from the critical construction path schedule. As a result, the customer was able to stay ahead of the slab construction. The smaller north and south cores utilized the SKE100 plus climbing systems in order to carry the concrete pumps including the Framax core wall formwork carry the pump and provide a completely enclosed safe working environment for the crews which in turn improves production and reduces overall construction schedule.


  • Critical construction benchmark dates
  • 4 day cycle for advancing
  • Not permitted to use traditional truss shoring due to proximity of site to major highway
  • Shear wall consruction restricts movement of shoring material through building
  • Limited spaced on ground for staging and storage of material
  • 3m deep transfer slab suspended 12m above floor below


  • Pre-assembled Top 50 wall formwork
  • Pre-assembled platforms for all Super Climber working areas
  • Main Core Top Platform Designed for Vertical Form - Re-Bar Storage
  • Pre-Assembled Platforms for all SKE Platforms
  • Facilitated simultaneous formwork climbs. Pumps helped speed cycling times with minimal manpower

Why was Doka selected as the formwork supplier?

  • After previously using the Doka's Super Climber, M.C. Velar once again chose Doka SCP to maximize production while minimizing the construction crew
