What to know before you visit
The concrete floor slab for the south side of the museum was recently poured. Modern technology made for a smooth and relatively quick finish!
Concrete is delivered in trucks.
Concrete is dumped into pump so it can be placed in the right location from overhead with little effort.
The boom of the pump can be operated by remote control so the operator can be right with the crew placing the concrete.
The remote operator is in the foreground with the harness.
Concrete is placed on the ground and the reinforcing is pulled up into the concrete.
Concrete is leveled using a laser-guided machine. The laser guide is in the foreground, the leveler is in the background.
