Who We Are:
How We Work:
We believe in service. That is why we created Form First Ltd. With our dedicated approach we serve each Customer individually. During open communication we either propose most suitable solution / system of work or we design following Customer's preference and list of materials available on site. All our designs are structurally analysed in accordance with relevant British Standards, Codes of Practice, Ciria Publications and are professionally indemnified to a single claim limit of £1M. We are confident that our approach is a recipe for safe solution and best utilisation of Customer's resources - both equipment and labour.
Why Choose Us:
We are equipment specialist – With over thousand designs in our portfolio we know pros and cons of each Temporary Works product available on the UK market. Applying this into practice we create safe design with correct connection details shown ensuring smooth installation on site.
We optimise the equipment usage – Economy of every formwork and falsework design can be improved by reusing one set of kit throughout the cycle of concrete pours. By maintaining close cooperation with appointed person we will ensure this is achieved making the construction process faster and more cost-effective as far as amount of equipment used is concerned.
We design relative aspects of formwork - Whether you need timber design, backpropping calculations or to assess anchorage fixing capacity or impact of wind on formwork we can assist with suitable details for your project. This means we are a one-stop shop for your formwork design needs..
