Shotcrete Structures was able to successfully implement the utilization of Shotcrete in lieu of CIP Concrete to construct almost 1,000 LF of beams & columns and provided substantial time and cost savings; while still maintaining all of the structural & quality requirements of conventional concrete.

    In an effort to reduce project duration and provide VE cost savings, SSI proposed and successfully installed over 15,000 SF of 1 sided forms and then placed over 600cyds of 5,000psi Shotcrete to construct the perimeter shear walls for the new Air Force One exhibit at the Reagan Library.
