Successful and cost-effective form development must consider both engineering requirements and architectural intentions. Structural wood-forming panels can fulfill a wide variety of forming needs.

Evaluating formwork design issues and choosing between job-built and prefabricated formwork, however, are not the only important considerations. When selecting structural wood forming panels, contractors must also decide which plywood type, class, grade, overlay, and texture will impart the best, most economical concrete finish for the job.
