The project has two (2) concrete slab on deck placements scheduled for Tuesday 9/15 and Thursday 9/17 of this week.  The project has coordinated and reduced these placements sizes with the concrete contractor to help decrease the duration of these work activities.  It is very typical in the industry that concrete slab on deck and concrete on grade placements require extended work hours to properly complete the work activity.
