Abstract:
In the progress report of the committee last year the intention to adhere to column and floor form systems for building construction was stated. The use of metal forms for chimneys, sewers, retaining walls, etc., has been an accepted practice for some time among contractors handling those types of construction, but in nearly every case the steel forms offer advantages in lightness, portablility, strength, or ease of assembly that cannot be obtained with wood forms which for such work are usually heavy and cumbersome.
