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.

  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...
