Abstract:
Forming economical concrete is discussed from the contractor's viewpoint. Two major concrete projects are used to compare manufactured and job-built systems for economy and quality. The contractor reveals his estimated and actual prices. The re-use of form panels, up to 72 times, produces real economy and achieves quality. The "team approach" in selecting the right system is used and recommended.
