On Tuesday, February 20th, Jeff Mosley of SINAK, will present an AIA credited HSW virtual presentation titled “How To Eliminate Flooring Failures.”
This course provides an overview of the considerations when installing concrete to receive floor coverings, with guidance on proper specification of concrete mix design, placement, and curing to secure a warranted floor covering system for the project.
Prerequisite Knowledge: Basic understanding of concrete design and placement.
Learning Objective 1: Describe the impacts of these flooring failures on human health, materials and labor costs, and delays and scheduling conflicts as remediation occurs.
Learning Objective 2: Restate the importance of communication among all parties involved in flooring installation so that unhealthy, unsafe, and costly flooring failures can be prevented.
Learning Objective 3: Identify and list some of the common flooring failures caused by moisture movement due to improper design, placement, and curing of the concrete.
Learning Objective 4: Discuss how improper water/cement ration, mix design, placement, finishing, and curing can impact the moisture levels in concrete.
CSI members are experts in building construction and the materials used therein and are dedicated to improving the communication of construction information.
