Contrary to a conventional construction system, where above ground floors are not built until underground works have been completed, the top-down method enables simultaneous work on both the substructure and superstructure. This technique is especially designed for buildings with a large number of basement levels and situations where distortions during basement excavation works must be restricted due to the proximity of adjoining buildings or important services.
