ASCC News Position statements target key issues

The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) has published the second three in a series of 12 position statements on key issues of interest to concrete contractors. The papers are written by Bruce Suprenant, vice president, engineering and technical services, Baker Concrete Construction, and reviewed by the ASCC technical committee.

“Trowel Marks on Concrete Floors” (#4) defines and illustrates the difference between trowel marks and a trowel pattern. “Specifications for Crack Repair” (#5) discusses the widely varying specifications for crack repair and the difficulty of contractor compliance. “Division 3 versus Division 9 Floor Flatness Tolerances” (#6) deals with the differences in specifications for floor flatness between Divisions 3 and 9.

“The position papers deal with issues that constantly cause concern for concrete contractors,” says D. Thomas Ruttura, president of the ASCC. “The better we can explain to designers and specifiers what can and cannot be expected from a concrete structure, the more likely we are to have a successful project.”

Copies of the papers may be ordered by calling (866) 788-2722 or by e-mail at [email protected].
