EXECUTION

FORMS:
Provide forms, shoring, and scaffolding for concrete placement unless indicated or specified otherwise. The
Contracting Officer may place concrete for footings in excavations without forms upon inspection and approval.
Set forms mortar-tight and true to line and grade. Charrlfer above grade exposed joints, edges, and external
corners or concrete 0.75 inch unless otherwise indicated. Provide formwork with clean-out openings to permit
inspection and removal debris. Forms submerged in water shall be watertight.

a. Coating: Before concrete placement, coat the contract surfaces of forms with a non-stain mineral oil,
non-stain for coating compound, or two coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. Do not use mineral oil on forms
of surfaces to which adhesive, paint, or other finish material is to be applied.

b. Removal of forms: Prevent concrete damage during form removal. After placing concrete, forms shall
remain in place for the following minimum time period. Not necessarily consecutive, where minimum
temperatures specified in paragraph entitled “Curing Period and Minimum Temperatures“are maintained
adjacent to the concrete of formwork. The minimum time period for removal of form shall govern where
it exceeds the minimum specified curing period. Where the formwork for one element supports the
formwork for another element, the greater time period shall apply to both elements.

ELEMENT TIME PERIOD


(Days Minimum)
Walls, columns, side of beams 3

Special Requirements for Reduced Time Period Prior to Form Removal: Forms may be removed earlier than
specified if slump test results of field-cured samples from a representative portion of the structure indicate that
the concrete has reached 85 percent (minimum) of the design strength.

Measuring:

Make moisture, weight and air determination of intervals as specified in paragraph entitled “Sampling and
Testing.’ Allowable tolerances for measuring cement and water shall be 1 percent; for aggregates, 2 percent; and
for admixtures, 3 percent.

MIXING: (note; if available)

Machine mix concrete. Begin mixing within 30 minute after cement has been added to the aggregates. Place
concrete within 90 minutes of either addition of mixing water to cement and aggregates or addition of cement to
aggregates if the air temperature is less than 85 degrees F. Reduce mixing time and place the concrete within 60
minutes if the air temperature is greater than 85 degrees F unless it can be proven by test results that the time
can be increased with the addition of admixtures. Additional water may be added, provided that both specified
maximum slump and water cement-ratio is not exceeded. Dissolve admixtures in the mixing water and mix in the
drum to uniformly distribute the admixture throughout the batch.

TRANSPORTING: (note: If available)

Transport concrete from the mixer to the forms as rapidly as practicable. Prevent segregation or loss of
ingredients. Clean transporting equipment thoroughly before each batch. Do not use aluminum pipes or chutes.
Remove concrete, which has segregated in transporting, and disposed of as directed.

PLACING:

Place concrete as soon as practicable after forms and the reinforcement have been inspected and approved. Do
not place concrete when the weather conditions prevent proper placement and consolation; in uncovered areas
during periods of precipitation: or in standing water. Prior to placing concrete, remove dirt, construction debris
and water from within the forms. Deposit concrete as close as practicable to the final position in the forms.
Deposit concrete as close as practicable to the final position in the forms. Do not exceed a free vertical crop of 3
feet from the point of discharge. Place concrete in one continuous operation from one end of the structure
towards the other. Position grades stakes on 10-foot centers maximum in each direction when pouring interior
slabs and on 20-foot centers maximum for exterior slabs.

a. Vibration: Furnish a spare vibrator at the jobsite whenever concrete is placed.

b. Application of Epoxy Bonding Compound: Apply a thin coat of compound to dry, clean surfaces. Scab
compound into the surface with the stiff-bristle brush. Place concrete while concrete placement. Follow
manufacturer’s instruction regarding safety and health precautions when working with epoxy-resins.

1.1. Defects
Repair formed surfaces by removing minor honeycombs, pits greater than 1 inch surface area or 0.25
inch maximum depth or otherwise defective areas. Provides edges perpendicular to the surface and
patch with non-shrink our grout. Patch the holes and defects. When form works are removed. Concrete
with extensive honeycomb (including exposed steel reinforcement, cold joints entrapped debris,
separated aggregate, or other defects) which affects the service ability or structural strength will be
rejected, unless correction of defects is approved. Obtain approval of corrective action prior to repair.
The surface of the concrete shall be uniform in appearance and finish to a smooth form finish unless
otherwise specified.

1.2. Not against Forms (Top of Walls):

Surfaces not otherwise specified shall be finished with wood floats to even surfaces.

1.3. Rubbed Finish:

Provide concrete with a smooth form finish. Finish as follows:

a. Smooth Rubbed:

Provide newly hardened concrete within 24 hours following form removal. Wet surfaces and rub with an
abrasive tool to produce uniform color and texture. Use only the cement paste drawn from the concrete

b. Grout Cleaned:

Finishing operations shall not begin until adjacent surface shall be cleaned are completed and
accessible. Cleaning as the work progresses shall not be permitted. Mix one part cement and 1.5 parts
fine sand with sufficient water to produce a grout with the consistency of tick paint. Substitute with
cement for a part of the gray cement in order to produce a color matching the color of the surrounding
concrete, determined by a trial patch. Wet the surface of the concrete sufficiently to prevent absorption
of water from the grout Apply the gout uniformly with the brushes or spray gun. Immediately after
applying the grout, scrub the surface vigorously with cork float or stone to coat the surface and fill air
bubbles and holes. Remove excess grout while still plastic by working the surface with a rubber float,
sack or other approved method. When dry, rub the surface vigorously with clean burlap. Keep
damp for 36 hours minimum after final rubbing.

1.4. Surface Finish Samples:

Provide a minimum of three samples concrete panels for each finish for each mix design. 3 feet by 3
feet, 3 inches thick Use the approved concrete mix designs). Provide sample panel on-site at locations

flowing water, mechanical injury, tire marks, and oil stains. Do not allow concrete to dry out from time of
placement until the expiration of the specified curing period. Do not use membrane-forming compound
where on surface on appearance would be objectionable, on any surface to painted, where covering are
to bonded to the concrete or on concrete to which other concrete is to be bonded. lf forms are removed
prior to the expiration of the curing period. Provide another curing procedure specified herein for the
remaining portion of the curing period.

the incidence of a tile being cut less than one half of its size. Spread adhesive evenly, then using notched edge
make a raking motion. Do not twist tile, simply press the tile down firmly yet softly. Set tile spacer and then
continue with additional tiles. Use your level to determine degree of level of the tiles as you go along.

Joints shall be maintained uniformly wide by aligning spacer lugs on tile edges. All lines shall be kept straight and
true to profiles, plumbed and internal corners rounded using the appropriate trims. Pitch the floor to drain as
shown in the plans.
