Commercial Slab Projects

Those in the business of concrete know the importance of a flat and level slab. Especially in industrial warehouse settings, where unmanned forklifts rule the floor and goods may be stacked on shelves 20 feet or higher, flatness and level specifications are a key indicator of project success.
