Imagine a post-tension concrete project with no pour strips, improved job site safety, and a process that eliminates approximately 30 days of construction time. View this quick step-by-step animation of a slab-to-wall installation.
Save a significant amount of time and materials over other construction methods with the use of Burke Lockable Dowels. Improve site access, minimize formwork requirements, and accelerate the rate of construction.
The Burke Lockable Dowel eliminates the need for unsafe, costly and disruptive pour strips. In most cases, project schedules may be cut by up to 30 days or more. Review some of these fast facts.
Burke Lockable Dowel system is transformative—allowing for quicker delivery schedules and needless disruption. No pour strips. No safety worries. No shoring or cleaning.
Concrete is the building block of modern society and the most widely used building material. Nearly every structure built today, including buildings, bridges, homes, and infrastructure uses concrete in some way. It provides us with shelter along with places to work, learn and play. It connects us through roads and rapid transit and airports. Water is delivered and treated in concrete structures. Concrete is economical, available everywhere, durable, and versatile.
As demand for building construction continues to increase, it is likely the demand for concrete will also increase. Like all building products, however, concrete has a carbon footprint. This course will analyze the top ten strategies to take advantage of concreteâ€™s benefits while ensuring the lowest possible carbon footprint.
Decorative concrete encompasses everything from overlays, inlays, mosaics, stamped concrete, and cast-in-place concrete amongst others. It can be used for swimming pool decks, as highly durable polished floors, and in a variety of vertical applications. Board-formed cast-in-place concrete can function both structurally and aesthetically, and masters such as Ando, Calatrava, and Kahn have mastered its use.
By understanding and analyzing the form and function of decorative concrete, as well as its benefits, limitations, and legacy, architects and other specifiers, will be better equipped to make innovative design decisions.
