Yes, this is often done. Actually, we prefer to do it this way. Not only does it give you a better finish to your building, it also serves to further anchor your building to the ground.

Yes. We often are requested to construct on an existing slab and can marry the building to the slab in a variety of ways. We do advise our customer that the preferred method is to construct the building first, then pour the slab. The second preferred method is to cut through the concrete at the locations where the poles are to be set, to set the poles at normal depth and then to back pour the concrete in those cut areas.

Concrete hardens as a result of hydration, that is the chemical reaction between cement and water. Hydration occurs only if water is available and if the concrete's temperature stays within a suitable range. After placing concrete, the concrete surface needs to be kept moist for a period of time to permit the hydration process. this period is referred to as the curing period and is usually 5-7 days after placing conventional concrete.

It can read the moisture as a relative reading; in other words it will give an indication of a problem area, but will not give a definite moisture content. There are constituents in concrete that can cause the moisture readings to be in error, but as long as the concrete is homogeneous, the error will be constant. Example: If the slab reads approximately 12% moisture in all areas but one area is approx. 20%, it can be assumed that this is a problem area.
Definitely not. Residential structures have been being built in the U.S. of formed concrete since the turn of the century. Thomas Edison built several homes of formed concrete in the 1900's that are still occupied today. Stay-in-place concrete form construction began in Europe in the 50's and has been widely practiced in Eastern Canada and Eastern U.S. since the 70's.

A - The slab may be of any size sufficient to stop the bottom of the mast pushing down into the ground but a standard paving slab (as opposed to just a paving stone) of about a foot square and two inches thick would be more than adequate for most situations. A piece of ground treated, solid, timber would do just as well.
Screw Clips twist into the foam-board insulation. The tubing snaps into the screw clips. Then, wire mesh (remesh) and/or rebar is laid over the tubing. When you pour the concrete, pull the wire mesh to the middle of the slab. Be careful not to pull the tubing up with the remesh when you pour. Many people prefer to use fiber-reinforced concrete so they don't have to install wire mesh.
