Tunnel form is a formwork system that allows the contractor to cast walls and slabs in one operation on a daily cycle. It combines the speed, quality and accuracy of offsite produced ready-mix concrete and formwork with the fl exibility and economy of cast in-situ construction. This publication describes how this construction method works and the benefi ts it can offer as well as highlighting projects where tunnel form has been used.
