They work on a variety of structures, including industrial and institutional buildings (e.g. hospitals, manufacturing, warehouses, shopping malls), bridges, roads, tunnels and dams, and perform work on surfaces ranging from floors, walls and stairs, to driveways, sidewalks and curbs. Concrete finishers specialise in producing different surfaces in concrete, from traditional trowel finishes, to patterned, imprinted or polished surfaces. Individuals who are suited to this trade are physically fit, comfortable working outdoors, possess good hand-eye coordination, an aptitude for proportioning materials, and a strong attention to detail.
