COLUMN FORM TECHNOLOGY: Revolutionary Concrete Form Building Technology

THE PROBLEM

Decorative columns that last, look good, and are maintenance free are not easy to come by. Most residential columns or patio posts are made of wood and are subject to mold, bug infestation, and rot. In a short time, the wood absorbs water and begins to disintegrate. The owners are left with the problem of repairing or replacing their decorative columns every few years.

Commercial decorative columns are typically difficult or even impossible to form, and the contractors' limitations regarding forming often translate to minimized or simplified design options available to the architect. Additionally, most forming options are inefficient, labor intensive, and expensive.
