This authoritative working tool shows you how to cut costs by making the most of the material, time, labor, and equipment required to design, erect, and remove form work. Complete details on state-of-the-art materials and technology, plus fast access to scores of tables and practical examples that help you sidestep costly, guesswork and trial-and-errors methods.

A complete, up-to-date list of form work material suppliers rounds out this one-of-a-kind money saver. With the expense of creating concrete form work so high -- often exceeding the cost of the concrete and steel used in the project itself -- you'll need this resource.

The book fully examines important new developments in materials, as well as economical new design strategies. You'll find state-of-the-art coverage of forms for:

  • Footings
  • Walls
  • Columns
  • Beams and floor slabs
  • Concrete floor systems
  • Thin shell roof slabs
  • Architectural concrete
  • Concrete bridge decks
