We were able to provide an alternate that eliminated ALL the transverse bars, reduced the size of the longitudinal bar and remove the wire mesh. This was a true win / win / win for us, the GC and the owner.— Scott SmithPRESIDENT, MPW CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

For the latest senior living residence community, Omni Senior Living added roughly 100,000+ sq. ft. of total living area. In the original design, the thickened slab acted as a bearing footing around the perimeter of the building. The original design also included a complicated rebar design that made construction extremely difficult. Helix 5-25 was able to eliminate all of the required heavy mesh as well as the required transverse rebar and significantly reduce the longitudinal rebar. In total, Helix was able to save tens of thousands of dollars along with roughly 10 total construction days.
