Question: How do I carry out large area pours for suspended slabs?

Large area pours for suspended slabs improve both productivity and quality

Concrete Advice 23 Large area pours for suspended slabs provides a simple approach to help designers and contractors avoid unnecessary restrictions on pour size and gives guidance on the provision of reinforcement to control cracking due to restrained early thermal movements.
