Re: Alternate Cold Joint Location

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I will go with A. It is easier to form.

Alt. B may require a water stop at the joint. The L-shaped bar may cause problem in proper forming.

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?
