U.S. Concrete's New York-New Jersey Operations Selected To Receive New York City Concrete Industry Board's 52nd Annual Award

EULESS, Texas, Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eastern Concrete Materials, Inc., a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR), was selected to receive the New York City Concrete Industry Board's prestigious 52 nd Annual Award. The award will be presented at the CIB's annual Roger H. Corbetta Awards for Quality Concrete recognition dinner on November 6 th at Marina Del Rey in the Bronx.

Eastern was recognized for its role in supplying ready-mix concrete to three of the subcontractors who performed work on the infrastructure, foundations and superstructure of New York City's newest and most distinctive landmark, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub Transit Hall. The "Hub" connects the Port Authority's Trans-Hudson commuter rail line as well as other rail and bus lines that service New York City.

The soaring Transit Hall is owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. It was designed by renowned Spanish architect, sculptor and structural engineer, Santiago Calatrava, working with a team of architects and engineers from New York's Downtown Design Partnership. New York City-based firm Tishman-Turner Joint Venture managed the construction. The ready-mix concrete was placed by Eastern's customers – EIC Associates, Skanska USA Civil/Granite Construction Joint Venture, and Sorbara Construction Corporation.

This is the second consecutive year that Eastern has been recognized for its leadership role in supplying ready-mix concrete to one of New York City's bold, new landmarks at the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. In 2012, Eastern received the Annual Award for providing ready-mix concrete for One World Trade Center. The 104 story/1,776 feet high One World Trade Center, formerly known as the Freedom Tower, is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and is scheduled to open in early 2014.
