US Concrete Inc (NASDAQ:USCR) the concrete choice in construction


Dallas, Texas 09/13/2013 (Financialstrend) – Central Concrete Supply Co is a US Concrete Inc (NASDAQ:USCR) business unit. It is now celebrating the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge opening. USCR is a front-runner in the delivery of low-CO2 concrete to San Francisco’s Bay Area. The company has also posted a photo-gallery that showcases the innovative concrete-solutions that were deployed for the construction project of the Bay Bridge. This visual album is called the “The Bay-Bridge, A Thirteen-Year Retrospective”. It provides the visitors with a very unique view of the enormity of this particular project.

The massive project

The Bay Bridge project had entailed numerous stringent requirements, like concrete durability, rapid-setting, COreduction and pumpability. In order to meet all these requirements, the company engineered over 40 specialty-mixes which led to numerous new performance milestones.

These mixes had been optimized to deliver the extremely aggressive performance that had been specified for this massive, technically-challenging project. However, Central Concrete’s use of 25- 50% cement replacement materials reduced the bridge’s carbon footprint to a significant extent.  The low-C02 mix-designs resulted in close to 60M pounds of CO2-reduction, in comparison to the conventionally used Portland cement concrete.
