Shaw & Sons pays careful attention to the engineering details of formwork, including horizontal and vertical layout, fabrication and installation to insure a visually smooth, code compliant finished concrete slab. Prior to placement of concrete, Speed Dowels™ are installed on the form work resulting in precise slip dowel alignment with greatly reduced cracking and spalling of construction joints.
