U.S. Concrete's San Francisco Bay Area Operating Company Reduces Traffic And Neighborhood Impact For Sunnyvale's Moffett Park And San Francisco's Presidio Parkway Projects

Stocks in this article: USCR

EULESS, Texas, Sept. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central Concrete Supply Co., Inc., a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR), and the leader in delivering low-CO 2 concrete to the San Francisco Bay Area, is successfully reducing traffic and neighborhood impact, while delivering concrete to two Bay Area projects — Sunnyvale's Moffett Park Building 6 in Sunnyvale and San Francisco's Presidio Parkway.

Moffett Park Building 6, Sunnyvale, CA

Central Concrete has been supplying concrete for the various Moffett Park construction projects for the past year. These iconic buildings, acting as a gateway to Silicon Valley, are bringing together best practices in architecture and construction and are targeted to receive LEED Gold Certification.

Most recently, Central Concrete has been working on the 200,000-square-foot Class A Moffett Park Building 6, part of the Technology Corners at Moffett Park, which was leased to Google in 2011. In May 2013, Central Concrete pursued one of its most aggressive challenges to date — an extensive, continuous pour for the mat-slab foundation. This translated into twice delivering 9,000 cubic yards, each over 15 hours. Central Concrete needed to pour an average of 600 cubic yards of concrete an hour, compared to a project average of 150 yards per hour for commercial building pours.

Working closely with Level 10 Construction and Jos. J. Albanese, Inc., Central Concrete devised a plan to meet this 300% increase in production, deploying an average of 60 trucks an hour from four local Central Concrete batching facilities. Recognizing the impact the trucks could have on Bay Area traffic, Central Concrete initiated the two pours at midnight, starting on a Friday and concluding early Saturday afternoon.

"During my 40 years working in this industry, I would rank this massive production request easily in the top 20 most challenging," said Tom Albanese, business development director for Central Concrete. "This highly choreographed operation took extensive planning and superb teamwork. By initiating pours at midnight, we minimized the impact of our fleet of trucks on the public while meeting all the needs specified by our partners, Level 10 and Jos. J. Albanese."
