Dave Flax

This seminar is dedicated to strategies for achieving higher-quality tilt-up panels by focusing on the foundational aspects of floor slab construction. We'll delve into how using concrete with reduced shrinkage for slabs results in fewer instances of cracking and curling, ensuring these common issues do not affect the panels. By addressing the root causes of panel defects at the slab level, we can achieve surfaces with fewer cracks and blemishes. The session will also cover approaches to panel repairs if necessary, discuss slab joints, and introduce panel grouting techniques. Featuring a wealth of photographs and concluding with an extensive Q&A period, this seminar provides a comprehensive overview for those seeking to minimize the need for panel touch-ups through better slab construction practices.
