Mr. Turner will be discussing how concrete parking lots primarily accommodate parked vehicles, but may also provide maneuvering areas and access for delivery vehicles. This presentation focuses on the design guidelines per ACI 330 for construction of concrete slabs for parking lots and outside storage areas. A good design needs to take into account site investigation, adequate thickness, joint layout and details, durability considerations, paving operations, and quality assurance procedures during construction.
