Shuttering Carpenter

Shuttering carpenters work closely with engineers and architects to interpret plans and designs and construct temporary moulds or formworks that are used to hold concrete in place until it sets. These formworks may be made of wood, metal, or other materials, and can range in size and complexity from simple slabs to complex structures like bridge abutments or high-rise buildings.

In addition to constructing the formworks, shuttering carpenters are also responsible for setting and levelling them to ensure that the concrete is poured at the correct depth and angle.

Benefits of the Service

Once the concrete has set, the formwork is removed, leaving a finished concrete structure that conforms to the original design.

  • Shuttering carpenters must be skilled in reading and interpreting engineering and architectural plans and have a good understanding of different types of construction materials.
  • They should also have good math skills, be physically fit, and have experience working with hand and power tools.
  • In some cases, they may also need to be able to operate heavy machinery, such as cranes or forklifts, to move large formworks into place.
