  • Proper Concrete Formwork

    You’ve no doubt felt the pinch of a down economy when you’re asked to come in at a lower bid than a competitor. Everyone in the design and construction industries is being asked to design and build better structures at a lower cost. This is easier to do for some types of projects than for others. Sometimes corners can be cut, and sometimes they can’t. This unit will look specifically at erecting concrete formwork. As you know, formwork determines the final shape of concrete but also, its strength, color and surface characteristics; where formwork is concerned, corners should not be cut. On some jobs you may need to use custom made forms, but there are commercial systems available that make work more efficient and less expensive, helping you to win bids. This program is intended for contractors and is not registered for continuing education credit. Take the course.
