Concrete contractors everywhere will be interested in some of the handling, placing and forming techniques used for a recently completed, mainly concrete, 430 car parking garage project in Topeka, Kansas. Because of the restricted site and other considerations, it was decided to place as much of the concrete as possible with pumping equipment. Approximately 5,500 cubic yards of concrete was placed in this fashion, or roughly 95% of all the concrete used on the job. The contractor believes that the decision to pump resulted in several important economies, such as the elimination of major hoisting equipment and buggy runways. He reports that there was also an important labor saving in placing the concrete. Where a conventional handling system would probably have required three finishers for setting screeds, striking off and finishing, the rough placement and initial consolidation on this job were usually handled by a crew of two laborers, and the final consolidation by one man with a vibrator.
