Concrecel® USA asked to complete the NASA Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center
"As the Roof Consulting firm for the complete roof replacement of the Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center we were faced with some unique challenges due to both the location and size of this project. Initial lightweight insulating concrete (LWIC) placement was plagued by inconsistent strengths and seperation of the mix at the point of placement after being pumped 530 feet vertically and 500 feet laterally from the mixing equipment on the ground. (Several areas of LWIC eventually needed to be removed and replaced.)
These problems caused us to search for alternatives, at which point Concrecel Canada was contacted. With their state-of-the-art equipment, they were able to successfully mix and pump the LWIC for this project and provide us with a consistent, high strength substrate for the finished roof system which exceeded the design requirements for this difficult project."...James W.
