Fidel Tukel is a former boxing coach, trainer, manager, and promoter in Sydney, Australia. While he still works with boxers and other athletes on conditioning, footwork, and the many other principles of boxing, he is primarily focused on construction and property development in the Sydney area. He provides concrete sales and services to many clients throughout the area, including formworking services. Formwork is a very important part of Tukel’s job these days, because he needs to sell these services so that his clients can get the most out of their concrete jobs as possible.
Formwork is a construction term usually referring to either temporary or permanent molds that concrete or other similar materials can be poured into. There are many different kinds of formwork, which Fidel Tukel is an expert on, including traditional timber formwork, in which the formwork is built on the construction site itself with timber and plywood. Sometimes these forms are also made out of moisture-resistant particleboard. This is known as the most flexible type of formwork. Engineered formwork systems are another form of formwork, in which the formwork is built from prefabricated modules in a metal frame and covered on the application side with material possessing the desired surface structure.
Fidel Tukel is familiar with these two kinds of formwork and many others. He and his company have been “building small to medium-sized residential properties in houses, duplexes, and apartments,” he says, in the Sydney area for many years. One of his company’s specialties is formwork and concrete application.
