Be Prepared for Concrete Delivery
When forming concrete, the minute the cement
truck arrives at the job its all hands on
deck. Make sure that all the placing equipment is
set and that your crew is ready with all the
tools that they need.
3
Work According to Equipment Specifications
When using pre-engineered formwork, make sure
that you follow manufacturer specifications. The
same goes for shoring equipment and proper
working loads. The safety of your crew is at
stake, so dont cut corners. There are plenty of
other areas you can save money.
4
Dont Use Shoring or Forming Equipment That Is
Warped or Cracked
Imperfections in formwork or shoring equipment
can be easily overlooked. However, something easy
to fix before the concrete sets up can cost
countless hours in surface repair once everything
is done. When it comes to concrete, doing it
right the first time always puts you ahead.
5
Ensure Formwork Is in the Right Spot
Once you pour the concrete into the form, moving
it is impossible. Take time to make sure it is in
the right spot on the front end of the job to
avoid a labor intensive rework.
6
Make Sure Formwork Is Properly Braced
If your formwork is not properly braced thats
when problems start to happen. Bulging and
complete failure of the formwork can ensue.
Better to over brace than to not brace enough.
7
Use Concrete Vibrators to Ensure Durability
Vibrators make concrete more durable. You may be
tempted to skip this step, but liability is a
good reason to make sure that you implement
vibrators wherever possible. A collapsed wall is
never good for a job no matter when it happens.
8
Remove Forms in a Timely Manner
Forms should be removed around 48 hours from
pouring. This allows for the concrete to hold its
shape, but still allows smoothing of problem
areas covered by the forms. It also allows for
easy finishing and rounding.
