No matter how fast you construct a building, the concrete slab needs time to cure and dry. Closing a building and installing flooring over damp slabs often results in mold growth, loss of profits, and a damaged reputation. This session will show you how to monitor moisture in the concrete slab and framing that’s in contact with the slab and offer tips to hasten the drying of the slab. This is a solid learning opportunity for project supervisors and company owners.
