moisture sources below the slab at the slab perimeter.
F. Accurately install mesh reinforcement as required and firmly
held a place before and after concrete. Provide lap joint 320
mm in the steel reinforcement. Arrange concrete spacer below
reinforcement to provide 75 mm minimum concrete covering.
G. Install joint filler strips at slab junction with vertical surfaces,
such as columns pedestal, foundation walls and grade beams.
H. Extend joint filler strips width and depth of joint, terminating
flush with finished concrete surface.
I. Before placing concrete (24 MPa at 28 days, maximum slump
125 mm) verify that installation of formwork, reinforcement
and embedded items(Electro-Mechanical) is complete and that
