Mahle/Behr Automotive is a renowned specialist in automotive air conditioning and engine cooling systems. This facility was built to encompass an Office Building, accompanied with a Research and Development Center.
The original design called for both the Slab on Grade and the Slab on Metal Deck to be reinforced with a 6×6, W2.1/W2.1 wire mesh.mThe Helix Steel design methodology enabled total replacement of the wire mesh in both of the slab applications. This was accomplished by adding 9 lb/yd3 of Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement to the concrete.
