Having your formwork supplier join your project team at an early stage facilitates both, a more precise cost estimate and schedule.
Contact formwork suppliers at the very early design stage of the project. This will allow as much information as possible to be included in the bid documents for a more accurate cost estimate. The formwork supplier can then supply a bid that covers everything known about what the project needs and a corresponding schedule. In addition to the actual rental and/or purchase costs, the estimator must also consider unspoken expenses such as consumable items, plywood not being quoted, professional field service support, tools, freight, and labor requirements that may impact the schedule.
