Alternate Cold Joint Location

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Dear colleagues,


A contractor has requested an alternate cold joint location. In the sketch found in the link below:


Alternate A is the method shown on the approved plans.


Alternate B is what the contractor wants to do.


The dowels match the slab bars.


Should I have a concern about the request?
