Determine the weather condition if hot condition, sand storm condition, rainy condition or sunny condition, before placing the Order of Concrete to Ready Mix supplier. Sprinkle clean water on the top of polyethylene sheet for bonding of concrete. When the Ready Mix Concrete arrived inform to the Engineers and applies the QCTesting of Concrete standard like slump test, temperature and volume at concrete check point. Place the Ready mix concrete by Concrete Mobile Pumps or direct pouring with chute and fallow the basic method statement for placing of concrete using Concrete Mobile Pump or direct pouring. When the Ready mix concrete placed on the area, level the concrete according to approved level of screed. Finish as per required surface finish the screed according to Specification or approval by Engineers. When the initial set of concrete occurs, apply immediately an approved curing compound or water curing.
