Project Summary

Description

Rose Acre Farms offers commodity eggs, specialty eggs including cage-free varieties, liquid eggs, dried eggs, and egg protein powder. From their beginnings in the 1930s as a family chicken farm in rural Indiana, Rose Acre Farms has grown to become the second-largest egg producer in the United States. With that expansion, they recently added a facility in Francesville, Indiana. Custom Concrete performed the concrete work on the project in conjunction with Ozinga Ready Mix. In reviewing solutions to provide for a more resilient concrete structure and to help compress the overall delivery schedule, Custom Concrete turned to Helix Steel. Helix® Micro-Rebar™ reinforcement was selected to reinforce Slab on Grade, Poured Walls and Column applications. This enabled Custom Concrete to remove 120 tons of rebar and save 6 weeks on the overall project schedule. ​ “Helix® concrete reinforcement offers an opportunity to improve project timelines, lower labor costs, and provides a safer and cleaner job site than traditional reinforcement." said Casey Harvey, Director of Operations at Custom Concrete. ​ This project was awarded the 2018 Concrete Achievement Award from the Indiana Ready Mixed Concrete Association.
