Trailhead Apartments – Royal Oak, MI

Royal Oak, MI - 2018

Project Description

Trailhead Apartments is a 56-unit, 8 story high apartment complex in the heart of Royal Oak, MI. This slab-on-metal-deck project was 1,200 cu yd with a dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd of fiber. When beginning this project, FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers were specified so this eliminated the need for placing traditional steel reinforcements. As a result, Albanelli Cement, a preferred contractor for FORTA Corporation, was not forced to lift mesh 8 stories high. Due to this advantage, extra equipment and workers were not needed to execute this feat. In addition to saving time and money by using fiber, there were no safety issues for workers while placing or storing steel reinforcements on the job site.
