1. Provide concrete certified 3500 psi (minimum) at 28 days for all work. 2. Use air-entraining admixture in all concrete, providing 6% +/- 1% entrained air for concrete exposed to freezing and thawing and from 2% to 4% for other concrete. 3. Use water reducing admixture in all concrete. 4. Allowable slump range: 3-5". 5. Mix designs may be adjusted when material characteristics, job conditions, weather, test results or other circumstances warrant. Do not use revised concrete mixes until submitted to and accepted by the Architect.
