oghrenovationsinc's picture

I'm looking for further info on construction details for thick edge /frost protected slab construction in the PIttsburgh, PA region. 

I'm planning on building a wood frame 22 x 22 workshop/garage. 

I know Davo 304 has posted on this and I think a couple of others from the Pittsburgh area. 

I would be happy to hear from others in the Pittsburgh area that have experiece with thick edge slab construction.  I'm pretty busy this year but would like to get the slab completed before winter so it would be great to hear from anyone that wants to give me a price or could recommend a concrete guy. 

Thanks

Thanks Piffin.  I have the general detailing and calculation info on FPSFs.

I wanted to discuss any regional modifications including any requested by the engineer at Pittsburgh BBI.  I could try to get engineering on the phone or drive downtown to ask but either is a half day project.

I'm also leaning toward just subbing the slab out so was hoping for a lead on someone experienced with FPSFs,

You obviously are best off (post #206914, reply #3 of 4)

You obviously are best off talking to someone local, but one thing to eep in mind is that i think FPSF need to be have a heated

interior. If this is for a workshop, you may end up having to heat it all the time to like a house, which would add a lot of cost.  i

could be wrong though.

sorry for all the grammar (post #206914, reply #4 of 4)
