Elk Ridge Builders
This is a unique project where the owner of the project was also the Structural Engineer and General Contractor. For the 5 inch slab, the initial design called for number 4’s @ 24”. Martin Marietta Materials reached out to the FiberForce engineers to develop a macro fiber alternative. A submittal package for an alternative to the rebar that included a 4 lb dosage rate of FiberForce 750 was approved.
This was the first time that Elk Ridge Builders had used FiberForce 750. The owner of Elk Ridge Builders and the concrete finishers were very impressed with the finishability of the macro fiber. Another unique aspect of this project is the use of ICF blocks for the walls of the office building.
The use of FiberForce 750 helped to improve the construction schedule for the owner. After a year of use, the owner of the project was very impressed with the long term performance of the slab.
