#42 Construction Crew: Concrete Placing Crew

Description: Seen here is a concrete pour crew in the middle of placing a mat foundation.  The process that is happening here is the beginning of leveling the slab of concrete to the final depth.  The tool the man in maroon is using is a called a screed and is basically a gas powered leveler.  The two workers behind the screed move excess concrete out of the way and add concrete to areas that are lacking to allow the screed to make a relatively flat surface.  Other finishing methods are then used to make a final slab that is within a tolerance of the specified depth.
