Some project designs and specifications for formwork may come along with the required submittal to third party authorities who approve that local engineering standards are met. Related review periods should therefore be taken into account to stay on schedule.
Project designs and specifications for formwork often dictate specific engineering requirements. These may include specific submittal requirements such as design and stamping of drawings with calculations by a Professional Engineer registered in the state or province that the project is being built. Varying by type of project such submittals can require up to a 60 day review period whereby the approving authority has this duration to review and approve.
In order to meet the timelines set out in the contract documents, a schedule with milestones should be laid out in advance with the formwork supplier to ensure enough time to allow for potential revisions and not cause any delay to the start of the forming process.
