“Since the inspection process was considerably simpler and faster than an inspection that included rebar, we were able to dig and pour the same day.”

Expanding on their current Southpoint Business Park in Davie County, NC, Hollingsworth Companies started a new phase of construction using Helix Micro-Rebar. Using an engineered design, Helix was able to replace rebar completely in all footings and all horizontal rebar in the dock walls. Since traditional rebar was not used in the footings, the inspection process was simplified and allowed for Hollingsworth to dig and pour the footings the same day. Additionally, any unexpected weather delays were avoided, which could have slowed or halted pouring. The Director of Construction for the Hollingsworth Companies, J.D. King, noted that the new Helix design saved over 30 days on the project schedule and helped the project to stay on budget. Along with those savings, the Helix design increased the durability and strength compared to the original designs. We are looking forward to a fruitful relationship with Hollingsworth Companies for future projects.
