Chapter 4 - Producing Silica-Fume Concrete
Conducting a Test Placement

Previous Next
It is an excellent idea to get everyone on the project involved with the test placement -- engineer, architect, and owner along with the contractor. Many contractors have used the test placement as an opportunity to try out different finishes. The owner's representatives can determine the degree of finish that will be acceptable on the actual project placements.

Don't forget that the test placement is an excellent opportunity to train the crews that will place and finish the concrete. Be sure that the crew that conducts the test placement is the crew for the actual placements.
