CONSTRUCTION SCAFFOLDING AND PLATFORMS FALSEWORK AND FORMWORK SCOPE This work covers the supply, construction, erection and removal of falsework and formwork. Falsework shall provide the necessary rigidity, support the loads imposed and produce finished structure alignment, dimensions and grades indicated on the Drawings or as ordered by UP Baguio. Formwork shall be of sufficient strength with all necessary bracing, fasteners, etc. and in conformity with the specified requirements of applicable building code requirements for concrete framework, and National Structural Code of the Philippines. MATERIAL REQUIREMENT Timber, lumber and plywood to be used for falsework and formwork shall be sound and shall comply with the requirements of these specifications. Use forms where a smooth form finish
is required. Lumber shall be square-edged or tongue-and-groove boards, free or raised grain, knotholes and the other surfaces defects. Steel when used shall conform to the requirements of the ASTM A36. Steel form surfaces shall not contain irregularities, dents, or sags. Forms shall be wood, plywood, or steel. Wood forms for surfaces exposed to view in the finished structure and requiring a smooth form finish, shall be plywood. For unexposed surfaces, undressed square-edge lumber may be used. Forms for surfaces requiring special finishes shall be plywood, or shall be lined with plywood, a non-absorptive, hard-pressed fiberboard, absorptive type lining or other suitable material. Plywood, other than for lining, shall be concrete-form plywood free of raised grain, torn surfaces, worn edges,patches, or other surface defects, which would impair the texture of the concrete surface. Surfaces of steel forms shall be free from irregularities, dents, and sags. CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS The materials used in the falsework shall be of the quantity and quality necessary to withstand the stresses imposed. The workmanship used in the falsework shall be of such quality that the falsework will support the loads imposed on it without excessive settlement. Suitable jacks or wedges shall be used in connection with the falsework to set the forms to their required grade and to take up any excessive settlement in the falsework either before or during the placement of the concrete. Should unanticipated events occur, including settlements that deviate more than ±20 mm, which in the opinion of the Contractor would prevent obtaining a structure conforming to the requirements of the specification, the placement of the concrete shall be discontinued until corrective measures satisfactory to the UP Baguio are provided. In the event satisfactory measures are not provided prior to initial set of the concrete in the affected area, the placing of concrete shall be discontinued at a location determined by UP Baguio. All unacceptable concrete shall be removed. Forms shall be mortar and watertight, true to the dimensions, lines and grades of the structure and with the sufficient strength, rigidity, shape and surface smoothness as to leave the finished works true to the dimensions shown on the drawings or required by UP Baguio and with the surface finish as specified. The inside surfaces of forms shall be cleaned of all dirt, mortar and foreign material. Forms, which will subsequently be removed, shall be thoroughly coated with a release agent or coating prior to its use. The release agent shall be commercial quality form oil or other approved coating which will permit the ready release of the forms and will not discolor the concrete. Formwork for concrete placed underwater shall be watertight. Forms shall be constructed so that the form surface of the concrete does not undulate excessively in any direction. Undulations exceeding either 2 mm or 1/270 of the center distance between studs, joints, form stiffeners', form fasteners, or wales will be considered to be excessive. Should any form of the forming system, even though previously approved for the use, produce a concrete surface with excessive undulations, its use shall be discontinued until modifications, satisfactory to UP Baguio's Representative, have been made. Portions of concrete structures with surface undulations in excess of the limits herein stated may be rejected by the UP Baguio. Form fasteners consisting of forms bolts, clamps or other devices shall be used as necessary to prevent spreading of the forms during concrete placement. The use of ties consisting of twisted wire loops to hold the forms in position will not be permitted. All formwork shall be provided with adequate clean-out openings to permit inspection and easy cleaning after all reinforcement has been placed. Where forms for
the specified variation for one element of the structure will not be applicable when it will permit another element of the structure to exceed its allowable variations. The entire cost thereof shall be included in the various pay items in the Bill of Quantities. falsework supporting any span of structures shall not be released before fourteen (14) days after the last concrete has been placed on the span and adjacent portions of each adjoining span for the length equal to at least half the length of the span where falsework is to release. MEASUREMENT AND PAYMENT No separate measurement for payment will be made for this item. The Contractor shall be responsible for variations due to deflection.
