Quad-Deck Estimating Guide Updated

The Quad-Deck Estimating Guide for standard reinforcing has been updated with re-calculated spans and an easier format. The span and reinforcing charts are now combined and a 4 inch slab and higher PSI concrete were added to the choices. The live load choices are now limited to those that are most typically used. New master sheets contain all relevant information for each panel thickness: spans, R-Value, concrete coverage, and overall floor weight.

ACI norms were used as the basis for calculation by a Professional Engineer. Please remember that a licensed engineer is still required for final structural and shoring engineering for each building but the most likely panel size and reinforcing for the initial estimating phase of a project can now be more accurately determined. A login or registration is required to download the updated Standard Estimating Guide.
