Qualifications: Bue CSCS NVQ Level 2 in Formwork

Your role as a Shuttering Carpenter will consist of the below.

Skilled Shuttering Carpenter with suitable experience of formwork / carpentry.

Shuttering carpenters must be able to understand architectural and engineering drawings, as well as specifications, to determine the dimensions, shape, and layout of the formwork required for a particular concrete structure.

Shuttering carpenters must be capable of building formwork according to the specified dimensions and shape outlined in the plans. This involves cutting, shaping, and joining the materials to create moulds that will contain the poured concrete.

Shuttering carpenters must be able to set up the formwork in its designated position, ensuring that it is securely anchored and properly aligned. This involves using a variety of tools and equipment, such as hammers, nails, screws, and braces, to assemble and fasten the formwork components.

In certain cases, the shuttering carpenter may be responsible for placing and securing steel reinforcement bars (rebar) within the formwork before the concrete is poured. This is done to provide additional strength and structural integrity to the concrete structure.

Shuttering carpenters work closely with other construction professionals, such as concrete workers, steel fixers, and site supervisors. They coordinate their efforts to ensure the timely and accurate installation, pouring, and removal of formwork.

Once the concrete has sufficiently cured and attained the required strength, the shuttering carpenter dismantles the formwork. This process involves carefully removing the formwork components without damaging the hardened concrete structure.

The VGC Group, and its associated companies are committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion in recruitment, employment, work, training, project management and service provision.
