Abstract:
The VST stay-in-place formwork system is used in the construction of multistory residential, mixed-use, and commercial buildings in Europe and the United Kingdom. The formwork is used to construct cast-in-place, reinforced concrete load-bearing walls, floor slabs, columns, and stairs. Formwork assemblies are custom built for each project, and they are delivered with factory-installed reinforcement. The system minimizes construction waste and field labor.
