Column forms are a type of concrete formwork. Concrete forms are molds made of steel, aluminum, wood, plastic, or other materials in which wet concrete is poured to achieve the desired shape and size for construction. Once the concrete has set, the forms are usually removed, although permanent forms still exist as part of the construction.

The shape and size of the column formwork depends on the needs of the project. To aid in quality control during the pouring phase using a column formwork, a horizontal jig made of steel or wood is often used in conjunction with a column mold. The head of the column formwork is often used to support the beam formwork or to cast the column formwork into the bottom side of the beam. The use of column formwork in combination with beam formwork allows for fast and precise construction.
