Grout under base plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The gap under some base plates in one of our jobs will be from 0 to 2" due to concrete (mis)placement. Columns are designed as pinned and some of them have bracings (for seismic zone 3 and wind). Base plates are welded to columns. What kind of grout do you specify for gaps less than 1/2"?(For gaps between 1/2" and 2" I am going to use a cementitious non-shrinking grout, like Five Star) Any other concerns? I'll appreciate all comments.
