TECHNOLOGY : PVC Stay In Place Formwork System


Already in use in Canada & Australia, the plant manufactured rigid poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) based polymer components serve as a permanent stay-in-place finished form-work for concrete walls. The formwork System being used acts as pre-finished walls requiring no plaster and can be constructed instantly.

This System is suitable for residential and commercial buildings of any height from low rise to high rise. In order to achieve speedier construction, strength and resource efficiency, the composite structure with Pre-Engineered Steel Structural System as structural members is being used in the present project.

Construction Process:

Construction is done in a sequential manner where at first, the Prefabricated PVC Wall panels and Pre-Engineered Steel Structural Sections as per the design are transported to the Site. Then, these Sections are erected on the prepared foundation using cranes and required connections. Floor is installed using decking sheet. Once the structural frame and floor is installed and aligned, wall panels are fixed on decking floor. The pre-fabricated walling panels having provisions of holes for services conduits, are fixed along with the reinforcement & cavities inside the wall panels are filled with concrete. Upon installment of wall panels, flooring and ceiling, the finishing work is executed.

Special Features:
  • Having formwork already as part of system, the construction of building is faster as compared to conventional buildings. The formwork needs some support only for alignment purpose.
  • In case of concrete as filling material, the curing requirement of concrete is significantly reduced, thus saving in precious water resources.
  • The formwork system does not have plastering requirement & gives a very aesthetic look.
