This specification provides standard tolerances for concrete construction. This document is intended to be used as the reference document for establishing tolerances for concrete construction by specification writers and ACI committees writing standards. The commentary on the Specifications for Tolerances for Concrete Construction and Materials (ACI 117) is intended to be used with ACI 117 for clarity of interpretation and insight into the intent of the committee regarding the application of the tolerances set forth therein.

Keywords: construction; concrete; drilled piers; formwork; foundation; masonry; mass concrete; pier; precast concrete; prestressed concrete; reinforced concrete; reinforcement; specification; splice; tolerances.
