... today I learned to look at other parts of the concrete design. The slab design said 5". But, one side of the gym came in at 99%.

I freaked out and said oh no oh no henny penny the sky is falling. I now feel pretty dumb.

After some research the GC pointed out that the side of the gym that is reading high has a masonry wall. On that side of the room, the concrete is 14" thick to support the masonry wall. So duh it isn't dry.

Anyway, I have to figure out how to read walls now before bid. Not sure how but I will have to pull out this projects plans and teach myself a new skill.

Learn something new every day. Shows why we have GC's. They do have the whole building in mind. Smile

Now I have to find out if the sealing company can do the whole bead blast and seal and top coat 12' of concrete without having to level the whole floor.
