Guide seeks to make concrete savings

CONCRETE structures group Construct has launched a Guide to Contractor Detailing of Reinforcement in Concrete in a bid to give the in-situ concrete frame contractor greater responsibility for designing reinforcement.

The guide proposes that tenders are sought on general estimates and that the contractor then produces detailed re-inforcement and bar bending schedules. This would lead to cost savings, faster construction and a less adversarial approach, claims Construct.
