26003809 – cracks on the field

Real professionals make installing post tension concrete tennis courts, basketball courts, or running tracks look easy. While it’s true that many contractors or designers know how the process should be done, not all of them have the right qualifications or experience. That’s why when making the selection it is important to take the following qualifications into account:

  • ASBA Member – The American Sports Builders Association is a centralized source of information, and has a minimum eligibility of two years’ experience to become a member.
  • PTI Member – The Post-Tensioning Institute represents builders that are dedicated to advancing the quality of post-tensioning processes.
  • Certified Personnel – The crew working on your project should have a Level 1 Certification from PTI with at least five years of experience behind them as well. The actual contractor should possess a Level 2 Certification from PTI to ensure that proper inspection takes place before the concrete is placed.
  • Experienced Contractor – You probably don’t want to be the testing ground for a newly ordained contractor. Your project should be professionally handled by a contractor or designer with at least five years of experience with post tension concrete systems, and have references for their work spanning the last two years.
