Nova plastic formwork can help scale up the speed of construction
This has strengthened our presence in high-rises and infrastructure projects has increased drastically. We have added new clients too, says Vikas Mittal, Director, Nova Formworks Pvt Ltd
Since there has been a significant rise in infrastructure projects like roads, bridges, water etc, how would the infrastructure segment benefit from plastic formwork?
Nova plastic formwork can help infrastructure companies scale up and speed up their construction. This segment generally uses heavy steel formwork which reduces the cycle time to a very large extent as it is heavy and very difficult to work with given cleaning, leaking, lifting, and many other issues which delay the construction. Nova plastic formwork on the other hand is very light weight, robust, easy cleaning, modular, environment friendly and much more. All these advantages give a faster cycle with a very good finish enhancing the concrete quality.
