  • We use 3500 psi concrete with fibermesh reinforcement, vapor barrier, and expansion joints.  We also offer aprons, sidewalks, and other concrete you need poured while the truck is there.
    damp proofing
  • treatment of a surface or structure to resist the passage of water in the absence of hydrostatic pressure.
  • Damp proofing in construction is a protective measure applied to building foundation walls to prevent moisture from passing through the walls into interior spaces.
  • An application of a water-resisting treatment or material to the surface of a concrete or masonry wall to prevent passage or absorption of water or moisture. Can also be accomplished by using an admixture in the concrete mix.

Design and Construction of Concrete Floors, Second Edition
Design and Construction of Concrete Floors outlines the key principles needed for the production of a good floor which can be relied on to not only support and restrain other parts of the building, but also to meet the needs of the user.

The book covers:
* Uses of concrete floors
* Structural design
* Concrete used specifically for floors
* Cracks and joints
* Floor surface properties

This book is ideal for structural engineers and others in the building and design industry that want to use a balanced approach and look beyond structural strength in the design of a good floor.

The book draws on both European and American experience, citing both British and US standards - all of which have been amended and updated since the last edition

George Garber has worked in the UK and is now based in the US as a Partner at Face Consultants in Lexington, Kentucky.

* Demonstrates how to successfully design and build concrete floors by drawing from a wide range of global experience
*Based on US, British and European construction standards
*Updated to include the latest developments in floor design and construction

Here you can see that I've put down some damp proof membane and started to add ballast. I calculated how much ballast I took out of the boat by weighing a small piece of a paving slab on the kitchen scales, and then multiplying it by surface area and then by the number of slabs i'd removed. I then went on a two week mission to beg, steal, borrow, or buy the same mass in metal. The idea being that metal is denser than concrete or bricks, I could get it all under the floor instead of up the sides, there would be an air gap round the ballast, and I wouldn't need to raise the floor to create this air gap.
Each stage uses some of the materials. First we placed the plastic sheet (damp proofing) on the floor. The concrete floor of the garage wasn't showing any signs of damp, but we're doing everything properly. Then we lay the battens down in order to screw the chipboard onto them. Note that the intention is to have the studio space "floating" inside the brickwork - so nothing is screwed into the bricks or concrete.
