When concrete is delivered it is a perishable product with a short shelf life that does not come with a set of instructions.  It makes sense to communicate and plan ahead of time for the arrival of the concrete. All parties involved in a concrete placement can benefit from a pre-construction and pre pour meeting to help ensure things go smoothly when the concrete shows up on the jobsite. The National Ready-Mix Concrete Association (NRMCA) has 3 publications that can aid in planning for a concrete placement. Attendees will receive copies of these publications. 

  • Checklist for the Concrete Pre-Construction Conference. 
  • Checklist for Ordering and Scheduling Ready Mix Concrete
  • Checklist for Pumping Ready Mixed Concrete.
