The versatile “liquid soil” which is placed as a flowable liquid, yet hardens and rapidly develops excellent load-bearing properties with no compaction necessary
Concrete Parking-The parking area of a building has become an integral part of total site development. Concrete parking lots offer great advantages: competitive first cost, low life cycle costs, low maintenance, upscale appearance, higher reflectivity, environmentally friendly, and they play a key role in sustainable development.
Green rooftops- The roofs of structures such as shopping malls, warehouses, and office buildings may exceed 160 degrees in the summer. Using surfaces with high albedo such as concrete can reduce the ambient air temperatures so that the entire area is cooler.
Pervious Concrete- Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective means to address important environmental issues and support sustainable growth. By capturing stormwater and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing stormwater runoff, and meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stormwater regulations.
Concrete Buildings- Any way you slice it, concrete buildings are a smart choice. Concrete buildings are energy efficient, storm resistant, quiet, sustainable and durable.
Concrete help-Make informed decisions with expert help from non-profit service organizations.
Self-consolidating concrete (SCC), also known as self-compacting concrete, is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that can spread into place, fill formwork and encapsulate even the most congested reinforcement, all without any mechanical vibration.
