Abstract:
Innovative structural slab construction practices have taken the efficiency of traditional slab systems to new heights. This session discusses state-of-the-art practices in voided-slab technology construction. The concept centers on removing “concrete” from the middle of the slab where it is not structurally efficient, reducing the dead load by as much as 35% and thus allowing for large clear spans and efficient overall slab thicknesses. Several projects currently under construction in the United States will be discussed as case studies.
