1. SCOPE

This procedure applies to the installation of formwork and the controls


required during assembly, erection and final positioning of formwork
used in Structural concrete operations.

2. PROCEDURE

.1 All formwork activities will be carried out in accordance with the


specification.

.2 After studying the structural drawings, the Project Engineer will plan
for sizes, numbers and type of formwork to be used in consultation with
the Structural Engineer, if required. Depending upon the programme, the
number of repetitions will be decided.
External designers may be used for specific systems.

.3 Availability of formwork will be checked with the Procurement


Manager/stores

.4 During fabrication of formwork shutters, all dimensions shall be


cross-checked with a view to avoiding corrective action during erection.

.5 Paint reference numbers on all panels to ensure their use in correct


positions.

.6 Ensure that the props, shores, waling, bearers, clamps and tie rods
are the right size and at the correct spacings. The Formwork designer
shall check the falsework system with respect to load imposed on it and
design parameters as laid down in the specification.

.7 Check that the falsework is securely braced and is on a firm


foundation.

.8 Forms fastened to previously cast concrete must be tightly fixed to


prevent grout loss

.9 Check quality of shutter lining, tightness of bolts and wedges, built-


in items, inserts and other embedments.

.10 Tie rod holes to be made in the formwork shall be neat so that
they can be patched or plugged later on.

12 Particular attention will be paid to the rigidity and line of stop ends
and joint formers.
.13 Remove all tie-wire clippings and nails, which may stain both the
formwork and the concrete.

.14 Ensure that adequate access and working platforms are in place for
the concreting gang and that toe boards and guardrails are provided.

.15 A spreader or lifting beam shall be used to prevent distortion when


placing formwork.

.16 Adjustable steel props shall be erected in plumb and verticality of


props checked using a spirit level.

.17 A prop should not be used if it is bent, creased or, rusted or has a
bent head or base plate, damaged pin etc.

.18 Proper release of agent shall be used so that it can be removed


without damaging the surface finish of the concrete.

.19 New timber and plywood forms shall be given first coat of the
appropriate release agent 36 hours in advance, then a second coat just
before they are used. Avoid excessive use of release agent as this can
cause staining or retardation of the concrete.

.20 A close watch should be kept on all wedges and fastenings. Make
sure that they do not work loose. Grout loss is an indication that some
movement has occurred.

21 When unsleeved tie bars are being used, ease them slightly before
the concrete sets, and remove them as soon as it is safe.
.22 Striking the Formwork:

i) Always obtain approval before striking the formwork from the


concerened personals.

ii) Ensure adequate safety measures while striking formwork.

iii) Cleaning the face of forms shall start as soon as they have been
struck.

iv) Good storage is essential to ensure that formwork can be used


again.

v) Paint code numbers on them so that they can be readily identified


when next needed.

.23 Safety During Formwork Operations:

i) The weights of large prefabricated sections of formwork should be


marked on them so that the lifting capacity of the crane at the working
radius is not exceeded. Lifting points are usually provided.

ii) If necessary, a lifting beam shall be used to prevent distortion.

iii) Where lifting is done by the vertical soldiers, check that they are
adequately connected to the walings.

iv) Fire extinguishers in working order shall be in close proximity to


the stored formwork.
