Formworker

A formworker is responsible for installing and repairing temporary frameworks that support the building process during construction. These temporary structures can be made out of various materials but are most commonly either wood or metal and are used to help the moulding of concrete and other materials.

As a formworker with McCance Group, you’ll be responsible for using casts to form concrete slabs, support beams and walls, to support the building process during construction.

The job role of a formworker involves the following duties: 

  • Creating forms for bridges, foundations, beams and staircases
  • Building structures on site using wood or putting together metal frames that have been made elsewhere
  • Dismantling casts without damaging them, so that they can be used again
  • Measuring, cutting and shaping wood or metal 
  • Working closely with your team to pour concrete into moulds
  • Checking work for accuracy
  • Producing concrete blocks of exactly the right shape and size for whatever needs building.
