Professional Formwork Contractors Sydney
In A.D. 120, as the Romans were putting the finishing touches on the Pantheon, little did they know that they were going to be recognized as the pioneers of concrete formwork. Formwork is the process in which concrete is poured into various molds and allowed to harden. After the concrete has hardened, these molds are then removed to reveal squared or curved components that blend in with the rest of the structure.
Those original structures were concrete arches, domes and vaults that were strong in resisting compressive loads yet lacked tensile strength. Those early examples of concrete formwork were originally only used in masonry since the concrete was considered to be a complex product with limited production capability. That all changed in the mid-19th century as concrete became the building material of choice.
Today, concrete formwork is widely accepted and the technology has come a long way since those early Roman structures were erected. Now that you have a bit of history behind formwork, let’s look at some types of formwork and how they are used in today’s construction sector.

Types of Formwork and Slab Formwork
In the modern realm of construction, formwork contractors will implement different types of formwork depending on the requirements of the structure being built.
If a concrete slab is needed per blueprint, the slab formwork is constructed to facilitate this. If a column is required, column formwork will not be far behind. As simple as it sounds, formwork is essentially just that, There is a form that is constructed to work the concrete product into the structure.
Larger concrete projects will facilitate their formwork with reusable metal forms such as steel plates designed to form large areas at a time. For smaller concrete jobs, there may be any number of materials used to build these forms such as plywood and timbers. Either way, once the area to be covered in concrete is formed, the concrete can then be poured to create a solid building component in the shape of the form.
After a substantial amount of curing time, or hardening, the forms will then be removed. This is called stripping, and the reusable forms are referred to as ‘panel forms’ while their one-time counterparts are called ‘stationary forms.’
Slab formwork is simply a process where the slab is poured onto its footing. The formwork process here is first designed to create a level plane with horizontal joists that are first poured and then plywood or steel sheeting placed on those support joists for the slab to be poured.
The choice of material for the form is usually determined by the size and scope of the concrete project. Smaller jobs tend to be constructed from wooden forms while larger, more expensive ones require steel plates and other substantial form materials.

Custom Formwork for Those Unique Concrete Shapes
Today, formwork can be facilitated to just about any shape or configuration. The ability to create different concrete shapes has allowed architects to design those highly eye-catching structures that grace so many metropolitan skylines.
Given the advances in technology, formwork has evolved into more of an art form than a construction component. So, what do you need to look for in formwork companies or formwork contractors?
