Abstract:
This is a sequel by the author to a paper discussing the contract documents for architectural concrete. Here, the discussion covers those things that the contractor should do to produce an acceptable architectural concrete project. The recommendations start with a review of the contract documents to locate problems and potential points of conflict. From that point, materials, equipment, processes, and controls are described.
