High Volume Fly Ash Concrete Usage for High Rise Construction

Fast and Epp s investigative report reviews the potential use of high volume fly ash concrete in high rise construction in a way that introduces no cost premiums to the existing construction process. The report concludes that an hvfa mix that is transparent in terms of set times and cure rates is not practical at this time and that the best opportunity for HVFA usage lies in the podium and parkade areas of typical highrise buildings.
