The Interface Between Concrete and Flooring Resolved

SPEAKER
Mike Tracy
Business Development Manager, ARDEX Americas

Moisture mitigation & floor leveling are necessary & critical parts of most projects. Historically, this work has been undertaken late in the construction process, when implementation is very costly, time consuming & disruptive. New approaches now allow such activity to occur in early stages of construction when the building is wide open, implementation is not disruptive to other construction activity- thus reducing costs, improving quality and shortening schedules. Attendees will acquire knowledge to ensure that concrete sub-floors will be as level as needed with minimal disruption to other trades; that slab moisture is mitigated with minimal disruption to other trades or delaying the project schedule; eliminate floor tolerance issues due to placement, finishing or slab curl; perform moisture mitigation & slab leveling at the least costly, most opportune time.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Ensure that concrete sub-floors will be as level as needed with minimal disruption to other trades.
2. Ensure that slab moisture is mitigated with minimal disruption to other trades or delaying the project schedule.
3. Eliminate floor tolerance issues due to placement, finishing or slab curl.
4. Perform moisture mitigation and slab leveling at the least costly and most opportune time.
