US Concrete wins New York City award

US Concrete’s takes Concrete Industry Board annual award for third time in four years

US Concrete’s New York business unit, Ferrara Bros, has received the New York City Concrete Industry Board annual award for its work on the 432 Park Avenue building.

Ferrara placed the concrete for the first high-strength, white-concrete superstructure in New York City. Ferrara’s quality control laboratory, Aggregate and Concrete Testing designed a self-consolidating ready-mixed concrete with white cement that met performance specifications.

“The feat of designing and delivering such a complicated, high-performance concrete is quite an accomplishment,” said William J Sandbrook, president, US Concret. “Ferrara Bros., and their laboratory, are very deserving of this prestigious honor and I take great pride in congratulating them.”

Ferrara worked with its customer, Roger and Sons Concrete, to place the concrete. The project was developed by the joint venture of CIM Group and Macklowe Properties. The executive architect, SLCE Architects, working with design architect, Rafael Violy Architects, and structural engineer, WSP Cantor Seinuk, created the latest iconic symbol in the famous skyline dotted with icons.

This is the third time in the past four years that US Concrete companies have earned Concrete Industry

Board’s annual award for their role in supplying ready-mixed concrete. Past projects include One World Trade Center, formerly known as Freedom Tower, and the World Trade Center Transportation Hub Transit Hall, two of New York City’s bold, new landmarks in lower Manhattan.
