Cast Formwork System

Safe, durable and cheap building system for informal areas

Cast Formwork System enables self-construction in informal areas to build up safe, incremental housing up to four storys high. Ordinary formwork systems are complex to use, often too expensive for the low- to mid-low income group and only suited to one shape of buil­­­ding plot. The CFS-system is not only cheaper, it can be customized to all shapes of building-plots and is both safe and easier in use.

Cast Formwork System has now built it’s scaled up prototype at The Green Village. The process of constructing the structure has been succesful. Subject of research now is how to implement the system in Indonesia in a safe, simple and cost effective way.
