Tunnel Formwork System, Conventional Formwork


Winds of change are blowing across every industry in India but the construction industry is still reluctant to utilize the advanced techniques that can enhance the productivity and efficiency of the construction industry. In recent years construction industry is witnessing increased demand in multistorey construction and repetitive modular structures are becoming an integral part of it. These structures require detailed planning in order to save cost and time. As formwork accounts for about 25 40% of the total project cost and almost 60% of the time in concrete construction, we need to pay attention to the development in formwork techniques and replace conventional formwork with new formwork techniques like tunnel formwork. This paper aims at focusing on the benefits and limitations of tunnel formwork in contrast to conventional formwork thus changing the mindset of local construction industries that are still dependent on conventional formwork techniques.
