@shepconqld leading the way installing “Stego” Vapour Barrior on Oxley Amart project. The Stego vapour barrier specified by @mcveighconsultants provides a solution to mitigate damage to moisture sensitive floor coverings. The barrier was tougher than our tough and withstood the construction pressures of our Somero S240 laser screed and Holcim concrete delivery trucks. Great Result Everyone ! 👍🏼 . . . #somerolaserscreed #someroenterprises #flatfloors #commercialconcretecontractor #superflatfloors #commercialconcrete #somerolaserscreed #concreteslab #concretelife #queensland @yourconcretesource

@shepconqld Teams close to delivering a 28,000m2 (9000m3) Container Hardstand Pavement at the Port of Brisbane. The concrete pavement involved as Dramix Fibre SL91 Mesh Combination Slab with tied construction joints. Shepcon innovated a unique formwork system and used our Somero S485 Laser Screed with a 3D profiler on the project. Special thanks for Logos and @mcnabconstruct for trusting Shepcon to deliver this project. . . . . . #flatfloor #flatfloors #somerolaserscreed #concretelife #concretework #pavement #construction #concreteslab #concretecontractor #commercialconcretecontractor #commercialconcrete #brisbane #queensland #australia @somero.enterprises

What I've learned is that many concrete contractors have been burnt by testing labs on FF/FL tests.. and they're quick to throw labs under the bus. In many cases, it's easy to start questioning everything, including their ethics. But I see labs all the time who are professionals who operate above-board and are worth their weight in gold for their service to the project. There's a missing link though: FF/FL testing is often an add-on service to a whole suite of inspections labs are performing on a project. Since so many labs are at peak capacity and (just like you) have way more work than they can handle, technicians get thrown to the wolves without proper training on testing + ASTM 1155. "Training" starts to resemble the telephone game you played as a kid. One kid tells the next who tells the next.. and pretty soon "Garbage Can" is "Jeff's garage band." One solution I see is more FF/FL education (on both sides) to help close the gap between labs and contractors. I imagine a world where more of them are working together as teams, not enemies, to produce the best product for the end-user. But I think it starts with each side proactively taking ownership and being willing to work toward the common goal. What do you think? Impossible or could it be done? -- #concrete #axiom #construction #floorflatness #concretelife #concreteslab #somerolaserscreed #materialstesting #commercialconcrete #concretecontractor #testinglab

Got together over hot plates of smoked chicken enchiladas with a dynamite group of testing labs today in #dallas ! The event went off better than I could've asked for and I'm grateful for the chance to connect with and learn from some of the heavy hitters in the DFW market. The rest of you missed out :) Of course, I had to get a pic cause otherwise did it even happen? #millennials Thanks for coming you guys! #concrete #axiom #construction #floorflatness #customersservice #somerolaserscreed #materialstesting #concretefloors
