The Arrow-up System (AUS) is a new building construction method developed to complete a whole building, from structural to finishing work, all at the ground storey level. First, principal building production plants will be provided at the ground storey level on its construction site. The structural work and exterior finishing work of the uppermost storey will then be carried out. Upon its completion, it will be thrust up all the way to the top storey level. Repetition of this procedure will continue until all other lower storeys are completed. AUS consists primarily of a stage jack unit. In system production control, the control station provided in a site office, performs all control functions such as operating the system, ensuring safety, balancing the lines, recording work progress, and issuing the necessary commands. The introduction of AUS dispenses with work which otherwise would have to be done in elevated locations ensuring a good working environment and allowing for work to be carried out under any kind of adverse weather. AUS can also stabilize the quality of work to be performed, without affecting electric wave bands.
