Presents brief introductory statement on the need for formwork standards based on the fact that 35 to 60 percent of the total cost of the concrete work in a protect in the United States is in the formwork. A section is given on engineer-architect specifications noting the kind and amount of specification the engineer or architect should provide the contractor. Since the committee concludes that formwork design and engineering as well as construction, must be the responsibility of the contractor, the recommendations contained in the report are directed to that group. However, an understanding of these recommendations by engineers and architects will aid these groups in their specification functions.
