Got Concrete?

This was a banner day for the construction of the extension to the Sahyun Library - the pouring of concrete for the building's foundation.   Eight big cement mixers pulled into our library parking lot, one after another, delivered their loads into a pumper, which pumped the mix through a hose to the site of application.  A crew of eight guided the hose, smoothed out the cement in and around the forms, adjusted foundation bolts, and removed form supports.  It was an impressive operation.
Here the entire crew is at work.

This is hard work and must be done carefully.

You would not have been able to drive into the parking lot on this day.
