  • Post tension concrete

    How can you identify a building that has them when you don't have any prints? Is there a time frame for Ca. that they wouldn't be installed?

    A PT slab has more to do with soil conditions than time period. Often a PT slab will have a big stamp in the garage concrete warning of a PT slab.

      This is what I'm looking at. A remodel of motels-single story built in the early 1980's. It's at Point Mugu Navy Base. Showers have to get relocated and this is the only part where the slab would get cut. There's no garage and I couldn't find a stamp anywhere.

        Sometimes you can look at the the outside of the slab and see rust marks from the end of the cables. Short of that you would need to get a pacometer.
