"Cracking of newly placed concrete bridge decks is becoming an increasing problem in the United States. Use of Type-K Cement concrete is one solution to the problem. Our goal is that this report will encourage others to use Type-K Cement concrete in the construction of bridge decks in view of its proven performance in reducing shrinkage cracks. As more agencies use Type-K Cement in bridge concrete, more data will be available to evaluate this cement’s performance in other areas such as reduced permeability." more...Innovations for Durable Floors [PDF]

"Innovations in the concrete construction industry are making the difference between the ordinary and the exceptional in floor quality and durability. Distribution Plus Inc. (DPI), specializing in large food distribution centers, has hihg expectations for qualityin its constructed facilities. That's why DPI specified shrinkage-compensating concrete (SCC) slabs with a traprock surface hardener for a state-of-the-art distribution facility in Upper Marlboro, Md." more...Gatorade Floor: Quenching Thirst, Joints, Cracks, and Curl [PDF]

"...The focus of this article is on some of the unique featues of the Gatorade facility's floors, which are significantly different from typical bottling or warehouse facility floors and even far from many previously constructed high-quality floors. The final design of the floors specified over 415,000 sq.ft. (38,000 sq.m.), most of which were of shrinkage-compensating concrerte, the design and construction of which incorporated the most advanced techniques were combined in ways never previously used to create floors of this type." more...Toyota Spends a Little More to Save a Lot on Big Warehouse [web link]

Engineering News Record (ENR), February 24, 1997.
"An advanced warehouse that cost about 2.5 time more than a speculatively built, plain vanilla, tilt-up concrete version opened this month in Southern California. Although costing $32 million for construction, Toyota Motor Corporation’s 760,000-sq-ft parts center includes amenities that are expected to save cash in the long run by lowering costs for maintenance, operations, and insurance." more...
