Abstract:
While the submittal becomes part of the contract between the concrete supplier and concrete contractor, it also communicates to the specifier what the supplier intends to supply and exceptions, if any, taken to the contract documents. Typically, a single submittal includes information on all of the concrete mixtures proposed for a specific project, and it should state whether the mixture proportions are prescriptive- or performance-based.
