METHOD STATEMENT.
1.

Installation concrete pipes

-Concrete pipes will be installed from concrete pump machines to ground slab. The pipes
will be set up as convenient as possible to meet the requirement.
2.

Casting concrete
1. Casting concrete B40 for Wall / Column.
-

At first, workers will cast the concrete B40 for Wall and Column by using
Tower crane / Pumps.

Casting B40 for Wall and Column should be followed immediately by B30
concrete to make sure the connection between two kinds of concrete.

2. Casting concrete B30 for slab.


-Specific team operates the pumps and displace pipes during casting concrete.
- Sika latex will be applied to ensure connection between the new concrete and existing
surface concrete.
-Casting concrete follows to the designed direction which was shown in attached
drawing..
-Using leveler to check and mark concrete surface finish level. Using ruler 3m length to
level concrete base on the cell marked (refer to attached drawing). Workers will grade
concrete to adjust the level.
-Arrange group of four workers in charge of finishing concrete surface. They start to
polish concrete surface by steel float or power float dependent on specification of
architect floor finish requirement.
- Incase it is raining heavily during the pouring period , stop and use plastic sheet to
cover the constructed area. The pouring work can be continued after the rain stop.
-Water curing start after casting about 8 hours and keep curing 3 days after casting.
3.

Unexpected problems and solution


a, It is raining when pouring concrete
- Incase it is raining heavily during the pouring period , stop and use plastic sheet to
cover the constructed area . The pouring work can be continued after the rain stops.
b, Breaking down of concrete or pumps

-Fico Pan U supplier is chosen for the batch.
-With 2 pumps (1 standby), it can be continued if one is broken. On the other hand ,the
pump supplier has their equipment distributed around the project and can be employed
