RE: CONCRETE: Combining Multiple Construction Tolerances

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

I'd like some opinions, guidance, communal wisdom, and profound insight.

I'd also like a 2015 Metallic Lime-Gold Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet...but 
 that's not important right now.

I'm struggling with specifying construction tolerances for an underground 
pump vault. The walls of the vault will be formed by driving steel sheet 
piling to form the rectangular outline, roughly 38 feet by 25 feet, excavating 
 to about 21 feet depth, putting in a 2 foot-thick seal slab, and then forming 
 the walls of the box at the perimeter atop the seal slab. The walls are
