We'll use this page to keep you updated on some of our more unique projects, while showcasing our capabilities.
K&M Concrete Construction, Inc. has been selected as part of the team transforming a 160-acre site into a distribution facility for a major national food wholesale company. The project commenced construction in the fall of 2019 with mass grading and building foundations and is scheduled for Owner turnover in October 2020.
This project was initially designed with Hot Mix Asphalt ( HMA ) for the majority of the site pavement, with a “voluntary alternate” from K&M Concrete utilizing DuctilCrete, an engineered slab on grade process that provides increased strength, durability and less joints than conventional concrete. The value engineering process began with a review and assessment that Portland Cement Concrete Pavement ( PCCP ) provides compared to HMA, and working in tandem with the General Contractor the K&M team provided a DuctilCrete engineered solution that will both serve the immediate facility needs and provide significant savings in reduced annual and scheduled maintenance. In an effort to provide the best value possible K&M Concrete searched for a concrete producer that could provide a dedicated plant, produce a superior product at a competitive price and the daily volume required to place and finish nearly 57 acres of PCCP surface and meet the project schedule. As part of the final pavement design, existing sub grade materials were strengthened utilizing Cement Stabilized Soils ( CTS ), incorporating an engineered proportion of cement with existing soils provided the working platform required to support all construction site activity.
In May, peripheral roadway pavement was under construction and once completed the K&M team will focus all project resources to the site pavement, trial batching and test slabs; they are in progress and final adjustments to mix design will be complete to support maximum daily volume.
We are proud to be a project Team Member and appreciate the collaboration provided by the General Contractor and Owner for the opportunity to provide a superior pavement product that will return benefits to this facility for many years.
We will be updating this page as the project progresses, so we invite you to visit again soon, to catch up on the latest progress in this very exciting project!
