Calypso Enterprises LLC. – Erie, PA

Erie, PA - January 2019

Project Description

A new growing and processing facility replaced specified wire mesh in a 50,000 sq ft slab-on-grade with a 3.0 lb/cu yd fiber dosage of FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers. The ready mixer contacted FORTA a week before the first pour was scheduled because the architect wanted to see a wire mesh to fiber conversion. Using fibers allowed the ready-mix concrete producer to tailgate the concrete instead of using a pump truck. This allowed the project to be finished quicker and as a result, saved the owner money.
