The Use of Concrete Forming Systems like Aluminum in Building Construction


Aluminum is one of the most commonly used concrete forming systems next to steel, from commercial building construction to domestic houses. It is utilized in roofing, windows, curtain walling, and partitions, among many other things. It is also used in other industries such as transportation and commerce. As aluminum experts and CEOs Heidi Brock and Paul-Henri Chevalier put it in their article contribution on metalarchitecture.com, “Highly recyclable, lightweight and durable, the metal is a key aspect of green building efforts taking place across the country and around the globe.”
Recyclability
Unlike other building materials that would be discarded at the end of its lifespan, aluminum can be recycled and reused while still keeping its fundamental characteristics or quality. Even coated aluminum can be recycled, prior to popular belief.
