Reinforced Concrete multistory building construction can be speedup by using sequential floor construction. Builders' demands to remove formwork more quickly have resulted in building collapse. Sequential floor construction involves casting new slabs at a higher level before the lower floors attain their ultimate strength. Shores either completely or partially support the lower floors in this process. Therefore, the correct formwork stripping sequence and understanding of the early loading concept of concrete are required to perform this technique properly. Engaging the available advancements in this technique, such as construction methods, concrete strength advancement, and formwork systems, saves the project's time and cost. In response to the growing demand in the community for this information on new developments, limitations, and the application of construction techniques, this paper was conceived. Researchers can learn more about building construction, and professionals can keep up to date on the latest developments. Building designers and construction professionals may benefit from the paper's findings by refining their current methods and procedures.
