Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the design professional will be able to:

  1. Discuss owner’s design intent and how it drives project requirements, thereby directly impacting specification language.

  2. Review specific industry documents and reference standards that drives the requirement to moisture test all concrete slabs.

  3. Investigate the genesis of current 09 flooring specification language.

  4. Specify sustainable design processes that eliminate: (1) project delivery delays due to concrete slab moisture, (2) subsequent bond or moisture failures, and (3) design team liability for each.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

FREE

In the macro critical path of project delivery, installation of final floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, due to changes in adhesive formulations driven by concerns over indoor environmental quality, most project 09 flooring specifications require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. Should/when those moisture tests fail, the project faces burdensome time delays, unexpected costs, or both. During this presentation, we will: (1) give significant discussion to the importance of “design intent” and how losing focus on what the owner expects can lead to potentially catastrophic, consequences (2) examine in depth several misconceptions embedded within the AEC associated with field moisture testing and project owner and design team liability associated with concrete moisture induced flooring failure; and (3) we will give clear recommendations as to how the specifying professional can eliminate concrete moisture as a project delivery issue while simultaneously protecting the project owner and design team from project delivery delays/cost overruns and future failed flooring.
