Concrete Floor Trade
Creating a Benchmark for Quality
It is recognized that owners and specifiers in both the public and private sectors cannot intimately know every industry with which they contract. Furthermore, the global construction landscape is constantly evolving with new innovative materials, methods and safety requirements. This presents a problem in evaluating the multitude of companies competing for construction work in a fair, open and transparent manner.This report has been prepared by Purchasing Consultants International (PCI) to address the need for a clear, concise, and standardized best practices guide to be used in solicitation documents, and specifications when prequalifying and tendering Concrete Floor Trade Contractors (CFTC’s). As a result, the owner/specifier will create a high enough benchmark to guarantee quality craftsmanship, while remaining open to a high level of competition between high-performance contractors.
Creativity for Architects
Exposed concrete floor finishes are a large part of the sustainable future. The combination of colours and textures for concrete surfaces provides an almost limitless expression of creativity for architects and long term durability for owners. The CFCA invite you to review their presentation on Architectural Finishes and Product Library for further information.
