Concrete Slab Specifications

Typical Design and Installation for a Concrete Slab.



Step 1: Frame

It does depend on site conditions. so you will need to get engineer approval.

You can build the slab from 20-25MPA concrete from 100 to 200mm thick.


Put in frame

The edges of the slab should be thickened as shown above with a raft foundation of +- 400x400mm.

This is usually done after the frame is installed by digging out along the edge.


Step 2 : Steel Mesh

Install steel mesh (usually Ref 193mm) throughout the concrete slab with extra in the raft foundation.

Step 3 : Poor Concrete



With expansion joints we typically put at 6m intervals.

Please ensure that the slab is floated - nice a smooth otherwise it will have to be screeded again before the

vinyl flooring is laid.


Step 4 : Erect Building
