Tall wall / wood form


Here are some construction shots from Nk'mip in April of 2005.


Wood formwork, pipe clamps, walers, strongbacks with through ties.

$60 a sheet for form ply, it's a shame none of this got re-used.

I wonder what our friends in India make of our abundant use of lumber and machinery?

Notice the form ply running wild on the left side.

Some kind of pipe clamp / through-tie situation here. As I recall the rest of the wall was done
with a different solution. Further investigation of the archives is warranted, obviously.


No chamfers on these edges, just crisp, crumbly corners.



Dont forget to reinforce those utility boxes!
