SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES
Pre-Form understands that it is important for our customers to maximise the investments already made in formwork assets. We will work with you to establish how best we can utilise your equipment in conjunction with ours, to maximise your return on investment.
On Site Services
Our on-site advisers have backgrounds in construction and project management. Training programs in formwork and concrete construction, keep them up to date and able to recommend optimal solutions to the ever changing site environment. Where required, responsibilities extend to formwork inspection and managing the formwork site budget.
We understand that choosing the correct formwork solution is critical to the overall success of our customer’s projects. The Pre-Form formwork solution is much more than just equipment. We deliver value through the entire formwork life cycle from program planning, formwork design, manufacture, delivery and erection.
This is the traditional way of contractual hiring and is typically based on a rate per item per week. In this model stock control is essential and we require the client to ensure that documentation measures are taken with the acceptance and return of equipment. We also require that, if possible, the customer send a representative to check returns in our yard.
Basket Hire - Supply Only
Basket hire models are based on a metre or square metre rate. With “supply only”, material is supplied but erection is the responsibility of the main contractor. Hire is charged monthly based on concrete poured, and not material used. All tender rates are agreed upfront. Pre-Form will also supply all other rates that might be relevant to the project. Further we will do detailed formwork layouts and will assist in the program planning to ensure the baseline program is met, or in most cases, beaten!
Basket - Supply and Erect
With Supply and Erect, Pre-Form takes responsibility for material and labour. This model provides a turnkey formwork solution in which the formwork program is managed on a daily bases by a Pre-Form site agent. Hire is charged on the same basis as “supply only” but the rates include the labour component. This is the type of project where we get most involved in layouts planning and problem resolution, and we can add significant value to overall project delivery.
