R&D Laboratory – Austin, TX

Austin, TX - 2019

Project Description

An R&D laboratory, located in Austin, TX, specified fibers be used in a new overlay project. The engineer chose FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers for this 6,000 sq/ft project with a dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd. The overlay for this project has a layer of copper mesh embedded in the concrete. This was a very specific application where steel was not an option because of the technical use of the room. Upon completion, this fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) overlay has a thickness of 3 1/2”, is 92’ by 58’, and is joint free. Using FRC provided this floor reinforcement and durability without using any steel.
