Structural Reinforcements Move Ahead July 26, 2011 By stewartperry This week, our team installed decking on the second floor of the building. This composite metal has a ribbed profile designed to interlock for permanent form and positive reinforcement. We are in the process of waterproofing the foundation. Our team is using stone to backfill the area around the foundation. This provides support for the concrete, and will prevent future cracking or structural damage.
