CONSTRUCTION 402: Best Practices for Cast-in-Place Concrete Construction as Designated by the ACI

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze cast-in-place versus shotcrete.
  • Examine code requirements, International Building Code, ACI 318, ACI 350.
  • Discuss design, engineering, details.
  • Identify forming, sequence of construction, construction considerations.


Cast-in-place concrete is not widely used in the pool and spa industry. However, when done properly the result is a vessel with unmatched accuracy for dimensional tolerances, flatness of surfaces, and squareness of planes. When dealing with all-tile finishes, cast-in-place structures are an easy canvass for the mosaics. The American Concrete Institute has several requirements for concrete structures and this program will highlight and explain the key considerations.
