SHOTCRETE

Shotcrete is like the backstage crew of a play. No one ever sees them, but the vital roles they have in the production cannot be overstated.

A shotcrete job is not exposed for everyone to see, but without it, a structure would collapse. Metro Ready Mix takes a leading role in providing consistent, pumpable mixes for many different—and often complicated—commercial applications.

Project Description:
Metro Ready Mix was honored to be a part of the construction of City Creek Center, the $1.5 billion centerpiece project of an overall effort to revitalize downtown Salt Lake City. Working from street level down, Metro was responsible for developing 65’ retaining walls. The job required a high-strength, consistent, and pumpable mix to secure a vertical slope of this magnitude.

HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE
Location: Salt Lake City, Utah

Project Size/Scope: 2,071 total yards

Project Description:
Metro Ready Mix had to overcome difficult logistics in the construction of a 400’ retaining wall at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Challenged with the complexity of long-distance pumping, timing was of critical importance in pumping concrete 400’ uphill at low slump. To cover such a distance required just the right mix of high-strength, consistent materials and perfect timing of the delivery trucks to keep the product moving.
