Formwork is the terminology used to describe the material required to shape or mould concrete structures before curing.
It can be permanent such as lost formwork which is cast into the slab soffit or each side of insitu walls, or it can be temporary. Temporary formwork predominantly consists of plywood or plastic sheet reinforced by conventional timbers or modular aluminium-type systems. Depending on the class of finish required and the formwork system adopted, formwork liners are also incorporated to enhance the concrete finish.
Formwork is supported by falsework or shoring, which usually consists of timber, aluminium or steel sections. Given the volumes of gear required and shorter project durations, it may be feasible to consider formwork hire as an alternative to purchasing.
