Title: Cost Factors for Cast-in-Place Architectural Concrete
Author(s): R. M. Gensert
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 36-45
Keywords: aggregates; architectural concrete; beams (supports); cements: coatings; colored concrete; columns (supports); concrete construction: concrete finishes (hardened concrete); concrete finishing (fresh concrete); concrete slabs; costs: curvature.
Abstract:Cost of architectural cast-in-place concrete is evaluated with charts and curves presented giving percentage increases over costs of conventional structural concrete for a variety of factors; such as, cements, aggregates, effect of overall surface geometry, surface indentations and projections, reveals and soffits. Beam and column cross sections and profiles are based on relative costs, with linear members serving as the basic measure. Coloring by using pigments is based on cost per cubic yard of concrete, while coloring by coatings is based on square foot of surface coated. Texture in terms of major form variations or form liners, or surfaces applied or removed are indicated as a cost per square foot of surface affected. Suggestions on form tolerances and construction are also included.
