Editor: Ramon J. Cook


When building a concrete structure, quality and economic efficiency go hand-in-hand. Substantial savings can be achieved by integrating the forming system into the total building process. Forming Economical Concrete Buildings has been especially prepared as an aid to both the designer and contractor. With the cost of formwork sometimes representing over half the cost of construction, it should be fully considered when selecting building designs, layouts, structural member sizes, and construction methods. A collection of 12 papers, Forming Economical Concrete Buildings, offers the reader a variety of ideas which can lead to substantial savings in formwork costs.
