CAST organised a workshop with five local Mandor (construction foreman) in Bandung Indonesia. In this workshop we tested two groups simultaneously; the first group received a manual and no further instructions; the second group received no manual but extensive instructions. We wanted to test their ability to work with a paper manual, by stacking both groups in a ‘competition’ against each other. It was very clear that the group with the manual struggled the most.
CAST Formwork System spend january prototyping one column in the kampung of Indonesia. It was tested in a local construction of the Peri Urban Co-Houding project
