Precious Cat Company is a supplier of premium cat litter. With the growth of the company, they made the decision to expand into a new 200,000 ft² facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The original design for the warehouse slab called for #4 rebar at 18 in. ocew. Don Shubert, area manager for Croell Redi-Mix, has used FiberForce 750 macro fibers and recognized the cost and time savings by not needing to install rebar. S&S Builders estimated that they would save at least a week from their construction schedule. To replace the rebar, the design engineers at FiberForce recommended a 4 lb/yd³ dosage rate. Another impressive benefit of FiberForce 750 is the lack of fibers visible on the surface of the concrete slab. In addition, for the interior slab, over 4,500 yd³ of exterior paving was placed using a standard 1.5 lb/yd³ dose of FiberForce 300 fibrillated fibers.
