The shotcrete process offers numerous quality, efficiency, and sustainability advantages, but proper knowledge of the process is critical to the creation of a quality specification and for the success of any specifier /owner employing the process. This presentation is an excellent tool for all involved in maintaining a high level of quality for concrete placed via the shotcrete method. Presentations can be tailored to cover specific topics, but a typical general presentation would include the following:

• Dry-mix and wet-mix processes
• Specifications, material considerations, & typical performance guidelines
• Surface preparation
