MFE Aluminium Formwork

Monolithic Systems

MFE offers a revolutionary aluminium formwork construction system which has been developed and successfully used around the world to form cast-in-place reinforced concrete structures. 

Using our aluminium formwork solutions, all building components can be cast in a single operation, including:

Walls • Floor slabs • Columns & Beams • Stairs

Door and window openings are also incorporated. The resulting structure is extremely strong and highly accurate in its dimensions and achieves a high-quality surface finish with only minimum “skim coat” required for final surface finishing.

MFE System Formwork can dramatically increase the speed of construction with a 4-5 day per floor construction cycle average.

Rapid Cycle Times

Using the MFE system, our customers are able to dramatically increase the speed of construction with high-rise buildings constructed at a rate of 4-5 days per floor and landed properties constructed at a rate of one house per day using a single set of forms.


We use a ‘Production Line’ process approach for each key task.

By implementing daily work cycles, we achieve high productivity levels.

  • MFE formwork is designed for each project so the on-site construction process is simplified.
  • Semi-skilled or unskilled labour can be utlilised with training and coaching by MFE supervisors.
    • Reduces the reliance on carpenters and bricklayers.
    • Substantial labour & material cost reduction.
  • Systematic approach allow fast construction times with excellent quality results.
  • Construction ccycle of 4 days per floor achievable.
    • Includes all walls, cores, stairs, balcony’s, architectural features, pre-installed MEP etc.

Typically 4 – 5 day per floor build cycles are achieved.

Double or single storey home build cycle of 1 house per day can be achieved.

Reusability

High Reusability & 100% Recyclable

MFE aluminium formwork panels are designed for strength, endurance and can be re-used for multiple construction projects to maximise return on investment (ROI).

MFE formwork panels are manufactured using high grade aluminium alloy. This material is 100% recyclable and can be sold at products end of life at high relative scrap values. By re-using MFE Formwork you will substantially reduce future project formwork costs.

  • Panels can be re-used hundreds of times.
  • No timber or plywood consumable costs.
  • Stock panels can be integrated into new project designs.
  • Re-using stock formwork reduces the cost of future projects.
  • Maximises return on MFE formwork investment.
  • 100% recyclable with high scrap value.
