Mobile Gantry Crane Runways
High Strength Green Concrete Form & Pour
CeraTech USA is supplying ekkomaxx™ green concrete to the Georgia Port Authority and the Port of Savannah for reconstruction of gantry crane runway pavements. The customer specified ekkomaxx™ due to its high strengths and sustainability characteristics.
The Port Authority's first phase of pavement reconstruction consists of approximately 6,000 cubic yards of ekkomaxx™ concrete supplied by Argos USA's Savannah plant. This is the first major cast in place concrete construction project of its kind where portland cement has been completely replaced by an alternative binder.
Agricultural Livestock Facility
Durable Green Concrete Slab
ekkomaxx™ was utilized for this livestock facility due to its exceptional durability characteristics and resistance to acidic cleaning agents. Over 100 cubic yards were placed and finished by Bard Materials ready mixed concrete. A roller applied texture was also applied to minimize slipping by cattle.
Advanced Auto Wash Facility
Chemical Resistant, Green Concrete Slab
Southland Auto Wash recently completed their newest addition to a chain of advanced, professional car wash services throughout West Michigan. Consumers Concrete Corporation, Kalamazoo, MI, a CeraTech USA Preferred Producer, supplied ekkomaxx™ green cement concrete for the new auto wash from their Kentwood, MI, concrete plant. R.A. Holmes Construction was the contractor for the concrete and masonry portions of the project.
Southland chose to utilize ekkomaxx™ cement concrete because of their strong history of environmental stewardship and its inherent chemical resistance to harsh cleaning agents and long term durability
Rapid Warehouse Sustainable Construction
USMC Mountain Warfare Training Center
This project, commisioned by the United States Marine Corp, was to rapidly construct additional warehouse and training space ahead of the imminent winter weather. A green building system called, Insular Panel Wall System (IPWS) was to be built upon a foundation, knee wall and floor slab comprised of over 145 cubic yards of Ceratech USA's carbon neutral, green sustainable ekkomaxx™ cement concrete. All concrete was placed within a 5 day window, greatly fast tracking the project schedule. Walls were poured and stripped the next morning and slab was placed the following day in temperatures beginning around 18°F.
Of note... the closest readymix plant was two hours away in Reno, Nevada. CERATECH's cement powder (coal ash) was added to the coarse and fine aggregates at the plant. After arriving at the construction site, CERATECH's liquid additives were added to the transit mixer drums and mixed for approximately 6 minutes. This unique feature offers project managers a great deal of flexibility in scheduling and extended reach for projects outside of the typical 90 minute transit window.
Low Carbon Concrete Warehouse Foundation
Commercial Building, Columbus, OH
An ekkomaxx™ carbon neutral commodity concrete placement for a building foundation. This project required approximately 160 cubic yards of concrete. The walls were approximately 5' tall and 18" thick with a brick mold relief. All materials were batched and delivered by Scioto Ready-Mix and pumped in placed utilizing a 32 meter pump truck. All material was placed in standard forms, vibrated and finished. Forms were stripped within 48 hrs and building erection began shortly after.
CSX Rail Yard
Roller Compacted Low Carbon Cement Concrete Application
On 4/23/12 Savko placed 540 yd3 of roller compacted concrete (RCC) at a CSX terminal yard. Specifications required 4,000 psi @ 28 days.
! This placement alone diverted 165 tons of coal ash from being unnecessarily landfilled and eliminated over 162 tons of CO2 from displacement of the portland cement that would normally have been used for this project.
