Q We are an independent erector and we have five crews. Three perform all manner of precast erection and two perform small, simple work. The three crews do a dozen major structures per year. The other two crews may do 100+ small projects per year. Is the documentation requirement the same for all five crews?
A Yes. Preconstruction planning includes selecting a crane size, checking the project site, checking the weight of the precast to be set, checking on how to rig any unusual piece shapes, checking for any field or layout discrepancies, establishing a sequence, and verifying concrete strength of the CIP. Preconstruction planning, practices and procedures, equipment, safety, and tolerance are just as important (maybe even more so) on a small, simple, 20-plank, one-day job, as they are on a 6000-piece, two-crew, 100-day project.
