Roof Deck Concrete

watchful eyeThis morning the concrete pump was set up and ready to go by 7:30.  Forms were checked for final level and the concrete truck rolled in shortly after 8.  The teams completed the pour around 10:30. All under the watchful eye of Larry Smedley.

When the city planning deparment requested a change in our plans from pavers to poured concrete for the roof patio our structural engineer, architect and general contractor re-designed the roof deck which delayed the project and increased the cost of the new Church.  The pour this morning used light-weight concrete poured over re-bar which in turn was supported by a layer of foam planks.  The resulting concrete varied in thickness from 3″ to 5″.  It was then stamped to provide a paver-like surface.
