Elevated one-way P/T slab designed for 7" thickness.  ACI 117 has a tolerance of -0.25 in.  Measured thickness as constructed of 6.00" to 6.50", with parts of the slab as thin as 5.13".  This is an area of about 3,000 sf in a parking structure on a tight schedule, where all surfaces will be visually exposed.  A decision will be made manana.
