Formwork is a construction technique that consists of using temporary molds to create reinforced concrete structural elements, including walls, slabs, steps, beams and foundations. The molds, made of wood, metal or plastic, are designed to be removed once the concrete has set and cured. Formwork is essential for creating solid, durable structures, as it ensures precision in the shape and size of the concrete components while also offering flexibility in complex custom construction projects.

Formwork for new foundations and footing

The footing is the part of the foundation that’s underneath the ground. Its job is to support the walls of the building. To form it, the contractor must first determine the placement of the foundation before digging a trench of the appropriate width and depth. After that comes the installation of a wood or metal mold (the formwork). The contractor then pours concrete into the formwork and subjects it to vibration in order to eliminate any air bubbles and ensure that the concrete spreads evenly throughout the mold. The concrete then has to dry for several days before the panels can be removed. The team at Conception PLHP manages every step of the process to ensure that the work is done in accordance with best practices.



Underpinning work fortifies the existing structure of a building (for example, when adding a basement, reinforcing a load-bearing wall or adding on to a home). The formwork used in the underpinning process is often more complex than the formwork for a new home, as it must adapt to the existing structure, where space is often confined, thus necessitating the use of special equipment. To ensure the safe, efficient execution of the job, it’s recommendable to do business with a company that specializes in underpinning work. Conception PLHP is here to help!
