Importance of the Preconstruction Meeting
Concrete pre-construction meetings are of prime importance in planning concrete construction work because many potential problems can be avoided at the right time – before the start of the pour when the cost impact is relatively low. This presentation will discuss a typical preconstruction checklist that allocates responsibilities and establishes procedures related to concrete construction. Subgrade preparation, forming, concrete mixture proportioning (mix design), ordering and scheduling, placing, consolidating, finishing, jointing, curing, testing and acceptance as well safety and environmental issues will be included.
