Construction Concrete Slabs

28. Construction Concrete Slabs

After the walls have been constructed, these slabs of reinforced concrete are used to form the floor/ceiling of the rooms. The slabs have multiple holes running the length of the slab to increase the strength, decrease the weight, decrease the amount of cement used, and to decrease the costs. There are tens of thousands of these slabs by the side of roads everywhere you go. It takes a lot of muscle to steal one of these.
