Economy of Conventional Wall Formwork

Conventional wall formwork systems are economical when a lim­ited number of reuses are expected and wall or column configura­tions are not repetitive. The expected number of reuses for conven­tional job-built forms is three to four times, depending on the quality of wood, connecting hardware, and handling of the wood during erection and stripping.
