Ashley Capital has become one of the largest privately-held real estate investment companies in the United States. They recently added the Livonia West Commerce Center to their portfolio of 23+ million sq. ft.
The Gilardone Company, the concrete contractor for this project, realized that placing traditional steel reinforcement across 1.1 million sq. ft. would require a crew of workers and several weeks of time. Instead, the Gilardone Company turned to Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement to reduce the construction schedule and provide Ashley Capital with a superior performing and more durable floor.
Ken Bowen, V.P. of Construction at Ashley Capital states, “Ashley Capital was facing an impossible schedule given traditional construction methods using welded wire fabric but with Helix® steel reinforcement we were able to meet the schedule and provide a superior product for a knowledgeable and fast-moving tenant.”
Helix Steel was able to fully replace all of the WWM reinforcement for each SOG application with a Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement dosage of 9 lb/yd3. The video below showcases the grading, pouring, and finishing processes performed by the Gilardone Company. Video credit to Drone Brothers.
