Watch why this structural concrete contractor chose laser scanning technology to document as-built conditions on their projects - scanning every single deck from the ground up.
Is It Level? Is It Flat?: DPR Construction Knows the Answers Faster Than Ever on a $60 Million California Medical Center
There was a time when determining the flatness of a slab pour meant scheduling floor profilers to walk the slab, take readings, import data, and generate an F-number report. Now there is a simpler, faster, and more advanced way to determine floor flatness.
Read about how this structural concrete contractor now uses laser scanning technology to document as-built conditions on their projects.
Wet-Pour Quality Control: Compressing Workflow in Concrete Slab Pour Flatness and Levelness Measurement
Is it level? Is it flat? For concrete construction contractors, finishing foremen, superintendents, flooring inspectors, and structural engineers, they are the central questions to any large concrete pour. Read how new measurement technology transforms workflows, improves pour outcomes, and simplifies measurement.
Material selection is one of the most important choices you will make to the overall outcome of your construction projects. Understanding how different material options impact your bottom line leads to better informed decision-making. This course highlights the advantages that durable, non-combustible, low-maintenance materials and finishes bring to your projects, why architectural and decorative concrete is the smart choice for buildings and floors, and why concrete is a sustainable option.
Proper consolidation saves time and money. Vibrating enhances concreteâ€™s performance, appearance, density and strength and settles the concrete to eliminate honeycombing. See how all your commercial projects can benefit from a proper finish that is not only durable but reduces the amount of time and money spent patching and filling.
Concrete is an essential building material used throughout the world, providing proven performance for strong, durable and economical construction. A primary reason for this extensive use is the flexibility offered, but with this comes the responsibility to understand the strengths, limitations and optimization strategies to achieve desired performance. This course examines many of the fundamental issues that building and site designers must consider before designing and specifying quality ready-mixed concrete.
There are repercussions to pouring concrete without vibrating. In addition, if you vibrate without using the proper technique, you may not be solving any problems. See the solution for all your commercial projects in this short video which shows the technique required to accomplish a final product that is both structurally sound and has a properly finished surface.

This article provides guidance for architects, engineers and builders on how to design and build high performance reinforced concrete multifamily residential buildings using Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs). Combining the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility of highly engineered rigid insulation, ICFs provide ideal solutions for apartments, condos, hotels, dormitories and assisted living facilities. With increased attention to occupant safety and comfort, design professionals can take advantage of concreteâ€™s inherent fire resistance and noise reduction qualities, important features when designing multifamily residential buildings. This article will address how the thermal properties of ICFs, combining the high R-value of rigid insulation with the thermal mass of concrete, offer building owners significant energy savings over the long term. The article will also provide guidance on how to minimize the cost of ICF concrete construction to take full advantage of these benefits, resulting in investments that are secure and generate long-term value to building owners.
