This paper defines in brief, the need of Modular Aluminum Formwork in the Indian construction industry. The study is conducted on a project in Bangalore, Karnataka, India namely Salarpuria Sattva Divinity which comprises of a commercial (2B+G+5) and ten residential towers (G+21). The paper analyses the suitability of Modular Aluminium Formwork technology in a framed structure by considering the quality, speed of construction, labor requirement, cost of construction and other related factors. The same typical floor plan was also prepared in a complete Mivan design, for comparison. The estimation of cost for one floor of all the three structures using these three different formworks were prepared. The construction using Mivan technology seemed to be the most economical in the long run considering the number of repetitions possible with the formwork. The Modular Aluminium formwork construction was found to be as expensive as that of using conventional formwork for the RCC framed structure, considering only the initial costs (Maintenance and finishing costs are not considered).
