Constructability Points for System Formwork (Updated 1 January 2020)
System formwork are classified into vertical formwork and horizontal formwork under the Structural Component of the Constructability Appraisal System (CAS).
There are 5 bands assigned to both vertical formwork and horizontal formwork, with different allocation of constructability points to reflect their relative efficiencies.
*Due to the merger of Aluma and Harsco, the Aluma range of system formwork distributed by HKL-Formaply comes under SGB Aluma Singapore with effect from 1 July 2014.
Productivity assessments are conducted by formwork system suppliers or builders and witnessed by BCA.
Disclaimer: The banding of system formwork is for the purpose of allocating Constructability points to the different system formwork based only on assessment of their productivity outcome. They do not represent any form of endorsement, approval or accreditation by BCA for their purchase, lease or use. BCA will update the banding information from time to time when more system formwork have been assessed. BCA reserves the right to raise the productivity assessment standards of system formwork and the corresponding bands upon review and may downgrade any system formwork from its given band if the quality of concrete finish arising from its use is poor.
