- Concrete placement
There are quite a few numbers of ways that one can place the concrete at the worksite. The longer the concrete sits the greater are the chances of its setting due to the heat of the hydration. Therefore, it is important for the concrete to be placed at its destined spot quickly to strike off the humidity balance.
