We finished off the day’s work by building a deflector to control  the sloshy concrete being poured onto the top of the Perimeter Wall. The walls has hollow columns and they are all being filled up with the same ready mixed concrete being poured for our Floor Slab.



The Concrete is going to be pumped using a big 30 metre boom arm coming from a massive diesel powered engine and the controller will move the wide diameter tube over the hollow columns by remote control, so we made this deflector to help him aim better!

It is made of OSB boards and CLS timber, to make a 45 degree angle slope at the back and hooks to allow the tool to sit on top of the concrete  block walls without tipping off but allow it to move along. We also put two movable side hooks so one can lift these hooks when we come to a corner of the wall.
