Towering Performance on the Gulf

Five years ago, in the pages of this very publication, readers were introduced to Allen Concrete and Masonry, Inc. (ACM), a family-owned, full-service concrete contractor based out of Naples, Florida. At that time, the company was just embarking on a massive gulf coast development called Kalea Bay that, when complete, would complement upscale condominium living with a wealth of available amenities. Read more


Mountain Project Anything but Rocky

The importance of a good relationship between the concrete contractor and the pumping contractor cannot be overstated. Everything from pump type selection, to scheduling, to equipment positioning and movement is predicated on cooperation and collaboration between these two key parties. Nowhere is that more evident than on a project called Drivetrain currently taking place in the River North (RiNo) district of Denver. There, faced with a number of unforeseen circumstances, representatives from McClone Construction and the Denver branch of Brundage-Bone Concrete Pumping worked together to formulate a plan that flew in the face of conventional pumping logic.

From a Lot, to “A Lot!”

As it is in most major U.S. cities today, real estate in downtown Minneapolis is at a premium and is generally developed as quickly as an existing structure can be cleared. However, in the heart of the city, two blocks from the fabled Mississippi River, a full city block plot of land relegated to service as an at-grade parking lot since the early 1990s is getting its just due. There, work has begun on a 37-story tower that, when complete, will house the world headquarters of RBC Wealth Management, a Four Seasons hotel (the city’s first 5-Star hotel), several companies, 33 private residences, street-level retail and a public outdoor plaza. To accommodate the Twin Cities’ notoriously-tough winters, the new development will also be incorporated into the city’s 11 mile-long skyway system. Using truck-mounted boom pumps as well as a pair of Schwing 35-meter and 37-meter detached placing booms on self-rising forms, locally-based general construction firm McGough Construction is helping turn this once mundane site into what’s sure to be one of the city’s premier mixed-use developments. Read more
