Rebar Installer

Jul 5, 2016

Also called Reinforcing Ironworkers

Rebar Installers fabricate and place steel bars (rebar) in concrete forms to reinforce structures. They also install post-tensioning tendons (cables) in concrete forms and use hydraulic jacks and pumps to stress the tendons after the concrete is poured and hardened.

In general, rebar installers:

  • read blueprints and plan workflow
  • prepare scaffolding, hoisting equipment and rigging to move heavy equipment and materials
  • attach cables and direct crane operators
  • select, cut, bend, position, and secure steel bars or wire mesh in forms to reinforce concrete
  • perform post tensioning

Rebar installers are employed in residential, commercial and industrial projects.
