ASCC CPC Pre-Construction Checklists Developed
March 25, 2020

The Concrete Polishing Council (CPC) a subsidiary of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, has developed two pre-construction checklists for floors to receive a polished finish. They are “Checklist for the Pre-Construction Conference” and “Checklist for the Polished Concrete Pre-Construction Conference.”

The first is a supplement to the NRMCA/ASCC “Checklist for the Concrete Pre-Construction Conference.” “Pre-construction meetings are of prime importance in planning concrete construction work when potential problems can be avoided before the project starts and when the financial impact is relatively low,” says Bruce Suprenant, PE, PhD., F.A.C.I., ASCC technical director. “They’re especially critical when the slabs are to receive a polished finish. The input of the polishing contractor is vital in achieving the desired polished concrete finish.”

The second checklist is for a meeting to take place after the slab has been placed, and just prior to receiving the polished finish. “This is an opportunity to for the polishing contractor to point out any flaws or inconsistencies in the slab that might affect the end product,” says Dr. Suprenant, “including curing, floor flatness, compressive strength, hardness, etc.” It also covers site condition, means and methods.
