RE: Green Point Rated Concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A few years ago I went to a USGBC meeting at the Beck Group offices
about their use of high-volume fly ash (HVFA) concrete in the Radio
Shack headquarters in Fort Worth.  It was an excellent presentation put
on by Beck and their concrete sub, Latimore.  Latimore performed a bunch
of trial HVFA designs for the project with the agreement that their mix
designs would remain proprietary.  In the end, they decided to limit
their use of HVFA on the project, because it was going to add
substantially to the cost and schedule.  You can read an article about
it here:

(The info about the Radio Shack project starts part way down, with the
heading "A CASE STUDY").
