Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center – Lancaster, PA

Lancaster, PA - 2020


To save both time and money, fibers were selected to replace specified wire mesh in this new multi-story healthcare facility in Lancaster, Pennsylvania; in particular to avoid the crane time necessary to lift the wire mesh into place. Contractors initially chose a competitor fiber but were unable to achieve an acceptable finish on the first pour. They put in an emergency call to FORTA at 3:00 pm on a Friday afternoon and dedicated logistics and shipping staff were able to have FORTA-FERRO delivered to the job site by Monday afternoon. With the best mixing and finishing fiber in the industry, the contractor could continue the concrete pour on Tuesday and keep the project on schedule..
