The aim of this study is to increase the understanding of the relationship between the selection of Ultra High Performance Concrete -UHPC- and the overall environmental performance cost constructability maintenance and operational efficiency as it relates to the EcoSmartâ„¢ Concrete Project which aims to develop sustainable concrete through innovation in supply design and construction. This study looks specifically at the use of DuctalÂ® UHPC in EcoSmart s Sustainable Condo display.
The use of DuctalÂ® UHPC for the narrative ramps of the prototype Sustainable Condo has been highly effective. The material is capable of meeting and exceeding the project requirements of sustainability functionality constructability as well as satisfying the rigorous aesthetic requirements of a showcase piece.
