Slab Pour

 

Building Commissioning

The floor – the one aspect of a building that everyone who enters comes in contact with.  A concrete slab is one of the simplest, yet complex aspects of a building to install, and the most difficult to remove if not installed properly.  Slab pour management brings all the key players of the installation of a concrete slab to the same mindset.  With all the contractors looking at the same target, the concrete installer/finisher is given the best opportunity to produce the best possible floor.  Floor flatness/levelness testing as part of the slab pour management program is the final step of the service, performed using a F Meter, as per ASTM specification.  

Retro Commissioning

A need for more room for operations is a good problem to have.  But there is an obstacle between the need and want for the new space, and the reality of utilizing this additional floor space.  A new concrete slab must become “married” to another.  This marriage of concrete slabs can seem like a simple process until we recall that concrete slabs are fluid in their entirety, meaning, they have a tendency to move independently of the structure around them.  If the new slab moves independently of the existing slab the result could be a cracked and crumbled floor.  Slab pour management serves the role as matchmaker all the way to ceremony officiant for the marriage of new floors.  Floor flatness/levelness testing as part of the slab pour management program is the final step of the service, performed using a F meter as per ASTM specification.
