Pool Builders, though you may have used shotcrete contractors for years on your projects do you know what to look for to confirm you’re getting the best quality for your money? Though shotcrete is a placement method for concrete the process has fundamentally different equipment, material selection, crew responsibilities, application techniques, testing, curing and protection that need to be considered for producing high-quality and durable shotcrete you as a pool contractor and the owner expect.

This seminar from ASA provides guidance on over 40 critical elements of shotcrete applications for those onsite to properly evaluate the overall quality of shotcrete placement.  These include an overview on material selections, equipment, placement techniques, finishing, curing, protection, testing, and safety as it relates to the shotcrete process. For shotcrete contractors, this seminar will help you verify the quality of your work to your general contractors and inspectors.
