Use of EcoSmart Concrete in Nicola Valley Institute of Technology

In this case study of the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology -NVIT- the use of high volume fly ash concrete presented a significant challenge because of the longer set-up times required during cold weather placing temperatures and resulted in increased costs. Despite the challenges presented by cold weather concreting the original goal of almost 40% fly ash replacement of cement averaged for the entire placement of concrete was reached. The report makes recommendations for future use and acceptance of EcoSmart concrete.
