Constructing your slab begins with soil testing of core samples taken by a Geotech engineer. The results of this testing inform the structural design engineer how wide and deep to make the beams and what size steel should be used to properly reinforce the concrete.
The slab is then positioned on the lot, measured and “stringed out” to outline the engineering plans. Installing and bracing wooden forms come next, then bagging and creating the beams with plastic and road base followed by rough in plumbing and tying steel to engineering specifications. A pre-pour inspection is then performed by the structural engineer to make sure everything is constructed correctly.
We have been fortunate to have good weather for the past two weeks, so the concrete pour on Friday, March 9th was on schedule.
