This tool, which is utilized as a support system for various portions of the building, particularly the roof, permits the structure to be kept in its original condition throughout concreting and may be removed once the concrete has reached its strength.
Construction shoring jacks, of course, need engineering calculations and should be employed in accordance with the load delivered to the structure. Jack posts are typically used for shoring, or temporary supports, during building repair or alteration work, rather than scaffolding, which provides workers with access platforms. Supporting an existing horizontal beam while its original masonry supports are removed or restored is a common use.
