Board Formed Concrete – An Architect’s Guide



An in-depth design and construction guide for architectural board formed concrete including detailed specifications for: the concrete mix, form construction, wall ties, wood type, concrete placement and special design considerations.

This is a new technique for 30X40 Design Workshop which we’re excited to use on our Squid Cove Project here on the coast of Maine. While it’s a common construction detail employed in the Pacific Northwest, here in New England there are relatively few examples or contractors versed in this expressive yet humble material expression.

I created this video to share with you our findings having cast our sample panel and will update the video with a link to the finished product once it’s complete.
