CORNWALL, ONTARIO, CA & CORNWALL ISLAND, ONTARIO, CA. – BRIDGE

HIGH PERFORMANCE CONCRETE BRIDGE GETS INTERNAL CURING

  • Owner: The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited
  • Engineer/Management: Morrison Hershfield
  • Contractor: AECON Construction
  • Concrete Supplier: Lafarge Concrete
  • Mix Development: National Research Council Canada

The North Canal Bridge Replacement Deck was placed in the summer of 2012 with High Performance Concrete (HPC) that included Internal Curing. The concrete has a 28 day compressive strength design of 8700 psi (60 MPa). The lightweight (wet) sand used for internal curing was expanded shale (HYDROCURE®) by Northeast Solite. The cement used in the mix was Lafarge Tercem 3000 cement which has 5% silica fume and 20% slag. The coarse aggregate was 3/8" (10 mm) limestone and the fine aggregate was normal weight natural sand.

HYDROCURE® was selected based on its ability to minimize cracking in HPC bridge decks. Its use improves on all the characteristics of the concrete.

NORTHEAST SOLITE CORPORATION
HELPING TO EXPAND THE HEALTHCARE COMMUNITY.

Solite® is specified in hospitals by architects, engineers and design/builders due to its flexibility in meeting enhanced fire rated floor and wall assemblies. These projects are current examples that are under construction now for completion in the Fall of 2009 that incorporate UL® three and four hour fire rated systems in their construction.

In addition, reduced dead loads require smaller columns and longer spans between columns are realized.

These factors increase useable space, reduce initial and operational costs, and lower fire insurance premiums.

HPC Bridge Gets Internal Curing

TWAALFSKILL BRIDGE

HYDROCURE® – Cures, even before finishing stops.

Phase I of a 2 year project on NYS Route 9W requires the construction of a new, wider more sustainable structure to accommodate higher vehicular traffic. Phase I addresses the southbound lane. Phase II commencing in the spring of 2009 will address the northbound lane.
HydroCure® was selected based on its ability to minimize cracking in the High Performance Concrete (HPC) deck. Its use improves on all the characteristics of concrete. This is accomplished by substituting a small amount Hydrocure for some of the natural sand in a yard of concrete.

TANNERSVILLE, NY – WATER TREATMENT FACILITY

MANUFACTURED WETLAND IN TANNERSVILLE

This is a manufactured wetland that utilizes Solite® lightweight aggregate to breakdown harmful compounds. The effluent passes through the aggregate that contains colonized bacteria that feed on the compounds. The native plants then complete the filtration process absorbing the converted material that is now a plant nutrient. The resulting effluent leaves the wetland via gravity in a purified state into the watershed. Click here For more information on Wetlands.
