Use of EcoSmart Concrete in the Bayview High-Rise Apartment

The report details the use of EcoSmartâ„¢ concrete in the construction of the Bayview a high-rise residential/commercial building. The contractors found that EcoSmartâ„¢ concrete was easy to work with in terms of pumping placing and vibrating and produced a beautiful architectural concrete. Although the contractor did not commit to using higher levels of fly ash before construction fly ash percentages for concrete components were increased by approximately 13% over the contractor s standard low fly ash mixes. The report suggests that current highrise construction practices must be revised before EcoSmartâ„¢ concrete can be used cost-neutrally.
