    It''s pretty close to being the kind of roughed-up surface that RDP's like to see at cold joints.

    need detail for joint condition or nobody will sign off. May not need detail, a document before completing for best results in getting sign off.

    & = &

    Too much rust ( i.e. - scale ) on the bars, ...some intersections not
    tied together, ...reinforcement not fully supported throughout to
    prevent deflection during the placement.


    & = &

    If you are going to start enforcing OSHA Federal Law maybe we ought to get you a gun and have you start shooting illegals violating Federal Law.

    My sense is that the concrete foreman either did not have a lot of experience or just did not give a dam. Since it appears to be a commercial project it is likely that there is an engineer who should be asked to create a detail. Many projects have a detail for a construction joint.

    My initial bias is to remove the thin layer of concrete

    Best pun of the thread, judging by the slump in the photo.

    No, if I remember correctly, this was a retaining wall for a Walgreens parking lot.

    Sorry, my mistake. I recently had a frost footing install and the first thing I notices was no ufer wire, so I'm kinda on the look-out for it. The electrician ran like the wind to get it out of the truck and got it installed.

    Don't like the block in the footing to larger of a void. The cold joint is sloppy. IMG_2219.JPG
