The Pros and Cons of Permanent Formwork Systems
for Single Dwelling Wall Construction

Permanent formwork systems have become an attractive alternative to conventional masonry block, precast concrete and in situ building methods for both builders and designers in Australia, particularly in the multi-residential space. Suppliers and manufacturers of the systems herald them as the next big thing in construction, promising quicker project turnarounds, reduced costs, and cleaner and safer construction sites.

While they do vary slightly in their size, assembly methodology and capability, systems generally come as lightweight hollow panels or blocks that join together to form walls that are then core filled with concrete and steel. They require little bracing compared to in situ pours, erase the need for bricklayers and their materials, and require no specialised trades to erect - although in some instances warranties are voided if accredited installers are not used.
