The stockpiles may need to be shaded and sprinkled in hot weather or covered and heated in cold weather. The plant may require hot water heaters or facilities to add ice. The batch plant must be in good operating order and should be certified by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association. The contractor should take into account the time between batching and placement, including delivery times, batch temperatures, and external temperatures and their effect on slump loss. If necessary, more superplasticizer can be used to stay within the water-to-cement ratio at the point of delivery if remixing is possible and the delays of remixing are acceptable.

The high degree of mechanization offered by modern TBMs allows rapid and accurate installation of the segments. And the need for an initial temporary support system is avoided, as are the challenges of providing a waterproof membrane and placing concrete in the tunnel environment. Along with these advantages, however, the use of segments also presents challenges, which need to be addressed in the project specifications. The fabrication process needs to be able to repetitively deliver segments to high tolerances cast with high-quality, durable concrete.

The side facing the ground has a fleece lining that allows only water to flow through. The panning and drainpipe are placed immediately in front of the planned concrete placement for that day. The concrete is placed against the drainpipe and the panning so the water is forced into the drainpipe. In areas with extensive water inflow and full circular steel sets, open drain rock may be placed on the tunnel invert and covered with a geotextile. The system must allow free flow of the water because the fresh concrete can only exert pressure resulting from its own weight.
