Alternatives for too much slab starter bars

Alternatives for too much slab starter bars

Alternatives for too much slab starter bars

Hi friends I came again with a new issue at my project.

As the photo shown, there are 10mm starter bars around all core walls which is difficult to handle as we cast the core wall 02 levels higher in advance than the working level for ease of supporting placing boom. Our procedure has to break the core wall to a reasonable depth to take out slab starter bars, which were placed bent inside the core wall fw system during casting. This procedure consumes much man power and time wasting. Besides it make considerable harm to the core wall.

Anybody can suggest any form work of reinforcement alternative for this please? We have to go 60 floors more and this is a big headache to me.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Alternatives for too much slab starter bars

You need a preformed rebate system, Rebox or similar. All that chipping away of concrete is ridiculous and damaging to the structural integrity. But I think you know that.


RE: Alternatives for too much slab starter bars

Being unfamiliar with the construction process involved here, I'm not sure I understand the problem, so my suggestion may not be applicable, but here goes: Would a form saver insert like this one be a solution?

Ask the structural engineer of record, not some random people on the internet.
