1. A forming system, comprising:

  • a frame;

    two forming walls that are positioned at a distance from each other to define a thickness of a vertical void to be filled with concrete to form a first vertical wall course, one forming wall of the two forming walls is supported by the frame such that the wall can be translated toward or away from the respective other forming wall of the two forming walls, the frame can be raised to raise the two forming walls to be positioned to pour a second vertical course on top of the first vertical wall course,wherein the translation of the one forming wall allows for the pouring of the first vertical wall course having horizontally extending rebar that extends outside of the first vertical wall course to tie in a floor slab to the first vertical wall course, and for the vertical raising of the two forming walls to pour the second vertical wall course on the first vertical wall course without interference of the vertical movement of the one forming wall with the extending rebar, wherein the one forming wall is movable horizontally away from the respective other forming wall by a distance sufficient to clear the extending rebar.
