McCarthy Improvement Company
Builders Supplied over 55,000 cubic yards of concrete to this project in 2012. Eight miles of the Eastbound lanes were completely replaced. Using our Central Mixed Batch Plant, we delivered in excess of 200 yards/hour in dump trucks during the mainline construction. The shoulders and ramps were paved with Ready Mix trucks out of the same plant.
Kone Office Building
This beautiful building was constructed in the summer and fall of 2011. Builders utilized Lafarge’s TrueLite® Lightweight Aggregate on the suspended floors to achieve a lightweight concrete mix. This project has been nominated for awards with the National Slag Cement Association and is included in Lafarge’s yearly Calendar.
Rock Island Wet-Weather Wastewater Treatment Plant
This massive project had a very specific requirement for Mass Concrete which needed to have low heat generation within the poured concrete. Working with the contractor, we developed a low heat-of-hydration mix utilizing 2” coarse aggregate and high levels of Flyash and Slag replacement of cement.
