Architectural Exposed Concrete

Architectural concrete offers the designer a broad range of aesthetic options while simultaneously reducing environmental impacts by elevating the visible presence of a commonly employed structural material through texture, color and refinement of the surface. This presentation will explore the options to enhance reinforced concrete surfaces as a durable finish surface.  Relevant ACI standards and field practices for specifying tolerances and achieving the desired aesthetic outcome, as well as examples of exposed reinforced concrete projects will be discussed.

Webinar content to focus on how to help ready mix producers:

  • Understand owner/architect/engineer aesthetic expectations before quoting work.
  • Understand how complaints will be addressed.   Potential liabilities towards ready mix producer ?
  • Review of ACI finish ratings and how mix designs and admixtures can help achieve expectations
