Before they poured the slab in my shop, 40x48. 24x40 is 10 to 12-inches thick because of the bridge crane. I talked to an engineer friend of mine. He said wire mesh doesn't add any strength to concrete at all, it just keeps it from coming apart after the slab cracks / breaks. Rebar gives concrete strength!
If I had it to do over again I would have required vapor barrier. I don't have a problem with my shop, but the garage 150-feet away does! In the rainy season the garage floor is so wet it looks like the roof leaks! But I stopped that with some Bone Dry. Man I wish I would have had vapor barrier placed under that garage floor! Only problem with vapor barrier is the cement finishers hate it! It takes so long for the cement to start to get hard so they can finish it. The water can not seep into the ground, it has to evaporate, or be raked off the top.
Are you going to tie your post to the slab? I used Heta clips to attach my 6x12 post to the slab.
