The purpose of formwork is to safely support reinforced concrete until it has reached adequate strength. The formwork is fabricated and erected onsite in accordance with design.
Formwork benefits include:
Acceleration of the construction schedule
Reduced interest costs during construction
Allow early occupancy for the structure
Increased site productivity
Potential for error greatly reduced.
Safety with formwork is paramount; this includes a careful analysis of the job conditions on site, a determination of the loads that will be applied to the formwork and the selection and arrangement of suitable forming materials that have adequate strength to sustain the loads.
