Knife work on the new SAM slab at Biosphere 2

Mixing, pouring, and finishing concrete is no small undertaking. While it can be done bag by bag, shovel by shovel for small jobs, the critical nature of a uniform density, physical and chemical consistency demands proper mixing and delivery by a professional concrete company and finish by the experts.

Daniel, Ricardo, and Fernando are experts in their field. They estimated the concrete delivery to within a half wheel barrow and were able to cut and position the sauna tubes for the concrete footings for the shipping containers to a level of perfection. Next, we prepare the shipping containers and west side of the Test Module for extension of the pressure vessel and in January place the containers as the foundation for the new Crew Quarters at SAM.
