  Expansive Components in Concrete


FREE

Description

The A&E designers’ hidden secret to specifying concrete. Based on ACI standards, this presentation addresses the need to implement methods in conventional concrete and advancing technology creating a mix design to produce architectural concrete slabs that will provide the best canvas possible for polished concrete with a joint-free slab. Take the guess work out of such a design and understand how this can also help in tank farms, bridge decks and wherever concrete shrinkage is an issue.

  Design of Architectural Concrete Floors


FREE

Description

There are so many parts to design a concrete floor that meets expectations.

Is it really possible to produce architectural concrete floors without joints, curl and unsightly cracks? What are the fundamental of such a design?

This course isolates the value of such design, the best practice and how to manage the expectations through specification. It isolates new technology and the importance of sustainable elements such as longest life-cycle, reflective floors and low-maintenance.

  Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture


FREE

Description

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...

  Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design


FREE

Description

Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying...

  The Basics of Ground, Honed, and Polished Concrete Sustainable Floors


FREE

Description

This presentation addresses the need to implement advancing technology and methods to produce polished concrete coupling a mechanical process with concrete treatments. From the introduction of ‘modern densifiers’ in the early 1900’s to the advent of dry diamond grinding and polishing, the last 100 years have seen advancements in the way we treat the final concrete surface.

What was proven to have been counter-productive?

What technology and approach will yield the most consistent results and longest lasting finished product?

At the conclusion of this presentation you will have a general understanding of what polished concrete is and is not, how it is achieved mechanically, color enhanced and protected by treatments; and finally why specify polished concrete...
