7. Procedure:

Surface where concrete is to be laid shall be hacked, thoroughly cleaned made free from dust, grease, loose material and wetted to have just moist surface.

Roughly 80 to 100 Sq-m area shall be covered during one extend.

Two side track rails on which leveling beam and surface vibrator will be mounted shall be fixed approx. 4.0 m apart to desired levels. M.S. rails shall also be fixed at start and end where required.

Placing of M-25 grade of concrete shall then be done manually spreading it in horizontal layers.

On completion of 5 to 6 Sq-m area, surface vibrator shall be run over the surface to get required compaction.
