Formwork is the Current Construction System

Nowadays construction has evolved to a point in which all contractors make extensive use of prefabricated systems. Formwork London modules are a type of prefabricated construction system that consists on modules that are just assembled onsite. Most pieces are not bigger than a couple of meters. They make use of clips, pins or screws to put all the walls together.

The size and assembling method is meant to make construction easy. As the pieces are not too big, there is no need to use a crane or other special machinery to move and set the pieces. They fit most elevators, and are easily carried within the construction site. As for the assembling, it is done by workers with basic qualifications and no particular skills. It is in the finishing when a skilled worker needs to be careful with all the details to get a perfect job done.

The panels of formwork London systems can be made out of aluminum, steel, or timber. That depends on what you are trying to achieve. A distinction is made between panels for internal or external walls. Any panel will fit in the formwork modules to create a strong structure. In some cases, the space between each panel, where the formwork structure is, are filled with fiberglass to isolate heat and sound.

Other Types of Formwork

Besides formwork for construction systems, there are other types all formwork contractors should be aware of. This is a list with the most common formwork you can find in a construction project:

  • Climbing formwork
  • Engineered formwork
  • Flexible formwork
  • Insulated formwork
  • Metal beam formwork
  • Modular slab formwork
  • Reusable formwork (usually made out of plastic)
  • Slab formwork (traditional)
  • Timber formwork (traditional)

Each of these types of formwork are meant to serve a different porpoise. For example, you can identify a climbing formwork on a building that is under construction. This particular formwork type is the preferred solution for skyscrapers builders who need a way to climb and raise the building.
