To truly succeed under warm conditions the planning and coordination should start in the initial phases of the concrete manufacturing process. Planning for these can save a lot of time and money later on in the project.

A good starting point is to consider the temperature conditions on site. Questions such as:

Once you have the answers to these questions it will be much easier to understand the equipment and personnel requirements for your project.

Get necessary equipment
Hot weather concreting might require additional equipment such as water pumps, additional electric generators, lighting equipment (if working before the sun rises or when the sun sets) and other tools. One of the key issues in this type of conditions is that an equipment breakdown or delay may cause huge problems as the concrete will lose fluidity (also known as slump) quickly and harden much faster than under normal conditions. As discussed earlier, this can lead to a reduced quality of the cast, when the concrete is not curing effectively.
