Screeds and Bulkheads

Large concrete slabs often require multiple pours to complete. This requires the construction of bulkheads to contain the fresh concrete in each section and the construction of screeds to ensure the proper grade is maintained across the width of the pour. In addition to being strong enough to contain the fresh concrete, bulkheads must also be …
