This article focuses on the use of proprietary equipment for the support of fresh concrete to horizontal surfaces. The principles and methods described are broadly applicable to all falsework.

Buildability – sometimes referred to now as “construction method engineering” – is not a new concept and one always recognised as vital to the realisation of one’s ideas; it ought to be at the forefront of an engineer’s mind.
