I have a new construction project where I want to apply shotcrete to cast-in-place concrete columns and an elevated, post-tensioned concrete slab as a finish material. The finished application is intended to be in varying depths from 3 to 12 in. (76 to 305 mm) or more. The desired end result is a smooth, curvilinear, sculptural form. Is this type of application achievable?
Shotcrete can and has been used to increase the size of columns and thicken overhead slabs while providing great-looking linear or curvilinear finishes. Examples of curvilinear finishes can be found in past Shotcrete magazine articles. You can search the Shotcrete magazine archives.
