PROJECT: Nanshan America Advanced Aluminum Technologies
DESIGNER: The Schneider Corporation
PAVING CONTRACTOR: E & B Paving, Inc.
GENERAL CONTRACTOR: Shiel Sexton
COMPLETION DATE: Spring 2012
PROJECT DETAILS: The project called for 20,135 square yards of 7” RCC and 26,875 square yards of 13.5” RCC. E & B Paving’s skilled placement of this material led Shiel Sexton to add an additional 6,600 square yards of 8” and 13.5” RCC for the floor in one of the Nanshan buildings. The Nanshan America project contains two “firsts” in Indiana. The project was the first dual lift, wet on wet installation using two high density pavers and was the first application of RCC as the floor of an industrial building. The contractor’s use of high density pavers made it possible for a RCC installation to meet specification while achieving an attractive finished product. E & B Paving has made a significant commitment to production and placement of quality RCC, which is serving as a catalyst for further inquiry and opportunity. This job was awarded the National “Excellence in Concrete Pavement” Gold Award by the American Concrete Pavement Association in 2013.
