How a garage structural frame is designed and how it is constructed can account for the high cost of its production. There has not been much analysis of the frame design from a constructability point of view. Constructability analysis, contrary to the design and construction industry impression, is a complex specialty, demanding years of experience in what formwork material components can and cannot do under established safety criteria. Historically, the design and construction industry has been reluctant to change. The intent of this article is to push the industry to consider new ways of doing things that are less expensive than the way they have been done in the past. In experienced hands, high production formwork systems that provide the solution to the frame design can produce a high quality product and predictable profits.
