Man from the start of time is known to have construction etiquettes. In the high-rise buildings, the core is one of the most important elements in such enormous structures. Fast and efficient construction of the concrete core of a high-rise building is essential to maintain phased progress on other parts of the building. Formwork is one of the most important factors in determining the success of a construction project in terms of speed, quality, cost and safety of work as it accounts about forty percent of the total project cost of the structure. In high rise building construction, the most efficient way to speed up the work is by achieving a very short floor cycle. That directly depends on the selected formwork for the construction.The formwork development is equally important to the development of concrete in the construction industry. Nowadays extra effort has been put to improve the design of shuttering which ultimately leads to the reduction in weight. Apart from the primary materials of conventional techniques, the materials are now extended to aluminum, plastic, fibre glass, etc. Significant use of advanced formwork is suitable for complex construction processes and provides best results in cost effectiveness. This project describes the comparative analysis of conventional formwork and modern formwork techniques based on different parameters.
