The Development on Troy – Ferndale, MI

Ferndale, MI - June 2019

Project Description

The Development on Troy (The dot) used FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers in a new mixed-use parking, retail, and office development in the middle of the downtown business district of Ferndale, MI. This 3,000-cu yd project was developed by the city and used a fiber dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd. By reinforcing the concrete with fiber, the city was able to save space and reduce costs since they didn’t have to store mesh in the construction area. Safety issues were also avoided that can arise from using wire mesh in construction sites by using fiber reinforcements. This high-profile job is hoping to quickly attract young professionals to live and work in the area, so by using FORTA-FERRO, there was a faster turnaround time on the job.
