1. Prepare the equipment: Ensure you have the necessary tools for applying shotcrete, such as a shotcrete pump, air compressor, nozzleman tools, and other materials for reinforcing the shotcrete.
2. Mix the shotcrete: Prepare the mix according to the manufacturer’s instructions and pour it into the shotcrete pump.
3. Prime the nozzle: Once the shotcrete is ready, prime the nozzle with a small amount of material.
4. Apply the shotcrete: Use the nozzleman to direct the shotcrete onto the surface, starting from the bottom and working your way up. Ensure that all areas are evenly covered.
5. Reinforce the shotcrete: After the shotcrete has been applied, add reinforcement such as wire mesh or rebar, if desired.
6. Cure the shotcrete: Allow the shotcrete to cure for several days before walking on it.
