Going around a column, the laser screed passes nearby, a finisher hand-strikes concrete the laser screed can’t reach, followed closely by a finisher bull-floating the surface. The concrete mix is easy to work with.
Barton Malow used its laser screed to strike off a long line of concrete, followed closely with a bull-float operation. Then a spreader applied 1 1/2 lbs. of light-reflective floor hardener.
Final finishing operations are performed with riding trowels; first using pan floats and later steel trowels. The final finish will be hard but not “burned.”
