One of the most important components in the construction execution is concrete works. Therefore, we need formworks to form the structural elements that are planned in a construction process. In the process, an economical alternative needs to be taken regarding choosing formwork material to get more benefits, both in terms of cost and time. Fabric formwork can be an alternative solution for formwork material. An example of a feasible formwork material alternative is woven polyethylene-based formwork. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the performance value of woven polyethylene formwork and compare it with the conventional formworks such as wood and brick in terms of cost and time. Field observations and literature reviews have been done to answer these questions. By using woven polyethylene formwork on tie beam and pile cap structure, it was found that the average time and the investment cost of installation are consecutively 344.23 s/m2 and IDR75000 which is faster and cheaper than using conventional ones.
