We help make your customers' brilliant ideas concrete. When the team building the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the U.S. needed concrete mixes they could rely on, Holcim was there with answers – for all 46,000 cubic yards of concrete used. 2,770 feet in length, two 405 foot tall A-shaped towers with a concrete deck and reinforced concrete piers that measure 400 ft. For the piers, Holcim helped develop a mix for heat reduction and in the process exceeded the 6000 psi strength requirement delivering up to 8000 psi – without a single failure. And because the concrete gained strength quickly the piers were above the high water line before the spring thaw, helping keep the project on time and on budget. Find out how getting the mix right makes engineering marvels possible.
