The conversion of a historic brewery in Bavaria, Germany, into an office and events space posed a challenge: the need to replace five large stone window frames while retaining the original aesthetic of the façade. Using computer-aided design files specifying the geometry of the window frames, digital patterns were created to print polymer formwork elements that were successfully used to cast the window frame elements.

A unique feature of the Port of Seattle’s expanded International Arrivals Facility main terminal building at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is the incorporation of 37 precast concrete shear walls along the west side of the structure. These walls are exposed to view, so a quality finish was essential. All walls were cast horizontally, with formed surfaces on one long side and the two radiused ends. The other long side was manually completed with a hard-troweled finish.

When builders began construction of renowned Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí’s Temple of the Sagrada Família in 1882, the primary construction material was sandstone. As construction continues, concrete—high-strength concrete in particular—has become a critical construction material for the cathedral in the last two decades. Support columns have high-strength reinforced concrete cores and exterior stone or precast concrete “drums” that serve as permanent formwork.

This month’s Q&A discusses moisture vapor protection for concrete slabs that will be covered with moisture sensitive flooring materials. It focuses on the water vapor movement through a concrete slab, potential ways of reducing the water vapor transmission rate, and means of selecting a viable moisture vapor mitigation option.

Industrial concrete floors, constructed either as slabs-on-ground or as pile-supported slabs, are not considered as load-carrying structures. When designing such floors in Sweden, engineers can choose between two design methods with different safety levels. Research is needed to understand why the less conservative of the two methods has led to many successful floors.
