Title: Concrete form apparatus and method for assembly thereof

Abstract: A concrete form apparatus includes a rectangular panel having first connector elements along a first edge thereof and second connector elements along a second edge thereof. The first connector elements are aligned with the second connector elements and are complementary and structure. The first and second connector elements can connect a plurality of the panels together with the first and second edges thereof adjacent to each other. Third connector elements are connected to the panel in spaced-apart relationship and are engageable with clamps for securing walers to the panel. For example, the first connector elements may be hook-like latches and the second connector elements may be buttons. The third connector elements may be buttons. A plurality of the rectangular panels are arranged adjacent to each other in edge-by-edge relationship. The rectangular panels are connected together. A plurality of first walers are connected to the panels so the first walers are parallel to each other and are spaced-apart from each other. A plurality of second walers are connected to the first walers so the second walers are parallel to each other. The second walers are spaced-apart from each other and are perpendicular to the first walers.
