MFE Formwork Technology Sdn. Bhd. was formed on 4th July 2007 following a management buyout of Mivan Far East Sdn. Bhd. from Mivan Ltd.
MFE was ﬁrst formed in 1991 and has worked in over 30 countries throughout the region and are currently working in India, Singapore, Dubai, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, Thailand, Romania, Oman, Sri Lanka, Egypt and Libya. MFE has ofﬁces in Malaysia, India and Dubai.
MFE Formwork Technology is a revolutionary aluminium formwork construction system, which has been successfully used and developed over 20 years, for forming cast in place reinforced concrete building structures. Using this unique system, all walls, floor slabs, columns, beams, stairs, balconies, together with door and window openings are cast in place in a single site based operation. The resulting building structure is very strong, accurate in dimensions and tolerances, with a high quality of finished concrete surface and yet at the same time the MFE Formwork Technology is fast, adaptable and very cost effective.
MFE Formwork can be used for a broad range of applications, from straightforward wall and slab construction to more complicated structures involving bay windows, stairs and A/C hoods.The MFE System for forming concrete structures is probably the most versatile modern construction system and unlike other systems it is equally suited to both high and low rise construction. By using specially designed and manufactured Aluminium Formwork and effectively managing associated construction activities, MFE has virtually brought ‘assembly line’ productivity to the construction site environment, completing projects in record times with our 4 day per floor construction work cycles.
The degree of pre engineering and inherent simplicity of MFE’s Formwork enables unskilled local labour to be used.Every component is light enough to be handled by one operative, minimising the need for heavy lifting equipment.
The main characteristic of the MFE Formwork Technology are that it makes use of concrete as the principal building material for the prime reasons of cost and accessibility: Cement, sand and stone are readily available in most countries. Concrete also brings additional benefits in terms of it's build quality and strength, it's resistance to earthquake tremors, it's resistance to fire, rot and vermin attack; it's low noise transmission with good thermal capacity and it's proven durability, giving long life, with little maintenance.
