Standard vs. Customised Formwork, Plus Service

June 2019
Providers of formwork offer customised or standard solutions, or both. All the aluminium formwork supplied by MFE Formwork Technology (I) for projects such as Wadhwa’s Wise City is customised to suit building specifications.

“We tend to provide customised solutions for complex projects such as metro stations or cable-stay bridges, in addition to providing solutions for all kinds of buildings such as small, mid and high rise,” says Keshab Chopra, Managing Director, India and SAARC, Doka.

Doka India has provided a customised combination of formwork systems for the construction of underground stations of the Mumbai metro. Metro projects are complex because of the number of individual contract sections, often involving different methods of construction. 

Alsina Formwork (India) offers both standard and customised formwork. For instance, for the construction of the pier of the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link project, it has supplied standard formwork (modular formwork Alisply Panel System) as well as customised panels to cater to the desired concrete shape. Additionally, the Alsina Formwork (India) expert site execution team is onsite helping the client increase productivity, shares Dilip Mahajan, General Manager, India Operations, Alsina Formwork (India).
