Americold – Bloomingdale, GA

Bloomingdale, GA - 2020


A Thin Concrete Pavement (TCP) design was used for the new Americold facility in Bloomingdale, GA. This pavement design is a new design methodology that is competing against asphalt as a longer-lasting, less maintenance, light-reflective, and more durable option. This project used 5” thick concrete, reinforced with 4.0 lb/cu yd of FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers, and has a very small jointing pattern. This pavement is being used for the loading docks, drive lanes, and parking areas for tractor-trailer trucks. This contractor specifically requests FORTA-FERRO fibers for its superior performance, mixing, and finishing properties. By using this design, the owner was able to reduce construction and maintenance costs while maximizing performance and service life.
