Webinar on Advanced System Formwork II
The Construction Industry Council (CIC) has been promoting lean construction methods which are faster, safer and greener. The repetitive use of system formwork typically leads to considerable cost saving and productivity gains. In view of this, CIC is organising a series of webinars to promote the wider adoption of system formwork, particularly in the building sector.
In this webinar, we are delighted to have two leading experts, viz. Mr Bono KWAN from OTRON Formwork (HK) Limited and Mr Joseph WANG from HKFCA, to share their knowhow and insights of the deployment of advanced system formwork in construction.
The webinar's highlights are as follows:
