It is a LiteDeck insulating concrete form, we will place 3-12 inches of concrete on it, same time we pour the floor next to it and walls. Then a week later, we will install the top forms and pour them with the top half of the back wall.

The old building is out of square 4 inches, out of plumb 3, and I can't wait to get it locked in with concrete.

Was what you're doing now the plan all along, or has your involvement gotten them to change things?

That looks like a mean project, we did a restore a couple years ago on a very old 4 story brick building with a new build adjacent to it.
Tying the buildings together was the challenging part as the engineers would only let us do one opening at a time (11 total, from recollection) so they got steel cages and poured in one - had it dialed by the 11th ;-)
