Shotcrete is a placement method for concrete. Thus, you should place movement joints (contraction, expansion, isolation) as would be required by your local design codes for concrete. Joint spacing will depend on the amount of reinforcement used in the section to resist temperature and shrinkage volume changes. Construction joint spacing can be determined by the contractor depending on their production rates. Properly prepared construction joints will act as monolithic concrete as long as the joints are properly prepared and proper concrete materials, equipment, and placement techniques are used by the shotcrete contractor. Construction joints should be roughened, cleaned, and then dampened to saturated surface-dry conditions before subsequent shotcrete placement.
