The American Concrete Institute has announced the formation of Subcommittee 310-0J, Polished Finishes, which has as its first goal to write a specification for polished concrete flatwork. The missions and goals of the Polished Finishes Subcommittee are as follows:
Mission statement: Develop a specification for polished concrete flatwork.
- Publish a dynamic and contemporary specification for polished concrete flatwork based on the work of ACI Committee 310 (Decorative Concrete) and other industry resources as they are credibly proven.
- Solicit, consider and integrate reliable resources and guidance in order to create a credible, defensible multiple item specification for use by all entities wishing to create durable, sustainable polished concrete flatwork.
- Publish and provide educational support.
- Advance and make available for dissemination, the knowledge, understanding and best practices for concrete polishing.
ACI Committee 310 member Jim Vermillion is the chair of the subcommittee and is spearheading this effort.
