Project Description:

Slab on ground is the most common type of floor base in commercial construction and can even have an unlimited life span if designed and constructed correctly, the longevity of the concrete floor also depends on how the area is utilised by the occupier of the premises.

All concrete floors are designed to withhold a certain amount of weight per square meter eg; 125mm thickness has an imposed load of 500kg/m2, it is important to understand what your load bearing capacity is to avoid damage from incorrect use such as operating heavy machinery etc.

An example of how a concrete floor slab should be prepped before pouring is shown below:
