Formwork

FORMWORK

Our formwork cell caters to the designing, detailing, scheming, customisation, procurement, deployment, training, implementation and maintenance requirements of our projects.

Based on the project requirements including dates, cycle time constraints, deployment durations, construction methods, and project drawings and documents. Based on the formwork scheme, considering the internal resource availability and short term renting if any, the delivery schedule is firmed up to meet the construction sequence at site. The formwork cell ensures proper utilisation of formwork, achieving cycle time and productivity targets, stacking, handling, cleaning, maintenance and upkeep of formwork materials.

We source formwork from international suppliers including RMD, DOKA and MFE.

Capacitˡe has the skills, capability and resources to undertake construction works using any of the following system formwork solutions:

We use vertical composite panel systems to form vertical elements of a building, such as columns. These usually consist of a steel/aluminium frame with facing material typically composed of plywood, steel, plastic or composites. The vertical composite panel systems are normally modular in nature with fewer components as compared to traditional formwork methods, which in turn lead to considerably lower assembly times and labour costs. These composite panel system formworks are capable of having different applications on site, with the larger crane-lifted versions capable of being used for constructing standard concrete walls, perimeter basement walls and jumbo columns.

We use horizontal composite panel systems for slab construction and these generally consist of a series of interconnected false work bays, independent props or system scaffolds supporting a number of panels. The components of the horizontal formwork systems are engineered to deal with both regular and irregular formwork areas. Reducing and minimizing the number of components in a formwork system allows mobility and quick installation of the formwork

We use table formwork system that allows construction of flat slabs using table-shaped formwork sets handled by crane. This type of formwork contains few components to be dismantled and assembled every time which in turn reduces the construction cycle times. Further, hooks and trolleys allow for mobility and utilisation of two floors of tables simultaneously.

We use aluminium panel formwork, for appropriately designed building works, to achieve faster cycle times than is otherwise possible by conventional means. Aluminium panels are lightweight but with adequate stiffness to support the weight of concrete. Aluminium panels are manufactured in standard sizes with non-standard elements being produced to suit project specific size and shape requirements.

We use automatic climbing system formwork for construction of multi-storey vertical concrete elements in high-rise structures, such as shear walls, core walls, lift shafts and stair shafts. Jump form systems comprise the hydraulics enabled formwork and working platforms. The formwork supports itself on the concrete cast earlier and does not rely on support or access from other parts of the building or permanent works.
