This chapter is primarily directed at project managers, designers, and specification writers, though it may interest others. The chapter scope will be limited to discussing sections of specification divisions 3 and 7 as they relate to parking structures. These sections cover technical areas of concrete, reinforcement, and waterproofing systems and are the heart of parking structure specifications. They represent areas of continually changing technology and are often the basis of disputes, so should be written with care. Be sure to define all terms. Enforce the specification at all stages of construction. Unfortunately, enforcement is often lacking. Determined long-term education of project field staff is the only practical way to improve enforcement.
