Webinar: Achieving Formed Concrete Surface Quality

Date: Jan 31, 2023

Duration: 1 Hr

Architects are specifying exposed concrete surfaces on an increasing number of projects. Resultantly contractors are often tasked to adopt forming and placing techniques that result in higher levels of exposed surface quality.

The starting point in achieving the specified surface finishes starts with a proactive discussion in preconstruction and prepour meetings. Several checklist items listed in the NRMCA/ASCC Checklist for the Concrete Pre-construction Conference, first published several years ago, provide direction on achieving formed surface quality.

In this discussion, our experts will identify these checklist items, then offer insights on the current products, technologies, and materials contractors should incorporate in the prepour meeting to provide a value-added solution. They will also highlight recent updates to three key industry documents that affect formed concrete surface quality: ACI 347.3R-13, Guide to Formed Concrete Surfaces, ACI 303 Guide to Cast-in-Place Architectural Concrete Practice, and ACI 309 Guide for Consolidation of Concrete.

Whether you are pouring a basement wall or an architectural column, you'll want to learn how to increase the quality of formed surfaces!

Learning objectives from this webinar:

  • How to avoid the three most common defects identified on formed surfaces.

  • How to incorporate the proper consolidation practice for that project to increase form surface quality.

 

Contractors, architects and engineers who attend this webinar will be given a Certificate of Attendance for self-reporting certification purposes.
