Description

In construction industry there are two main methods that construction companies use to place concrete for the substructure walls on their projects; the two main methods are either precast concrete or cast-in-place concrete. Both of them produce similar products, however, the risks that are assessed with each procedure are quite different. A construction company should assess the risks for both different procedures and compare the outcomes in order to find out which one is the least detrimental (least risky) to their project. This research includes the study of peer reviewed journal articles as well as information from a questionnaire that was administered to several construction companies who place their own concrete.
