IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING A PRIOR REGISTRATION BEFORE THE RESCHEDULING, PLEASE CONTACT [email protected].

One-day seminar for contractors and engineers. Attendees will learn tips and traps associated with form stripping and reshoring and will work through calculations for a reshoring problem. Instructor will address tolerances for vertical alignment and slope, slab deflections, balcony drainage issues, and tolerance incompatibilities with cladding materials. Expectations for formed surface quality will be covered with tips for minimizing surface effects such as bugholes that can lead to disputes. Attendees will also learn about different as-cast form finishes, surface blemishes versus defects, and how to achieve forming economies and compute form pressures. Advanced topics such as one-sided wall forming, and forming cantilevers.
