03.26.14The Pour!

The final foundation mat concrete pour went off without a hitch on Saturday, March 29th, at the University of Scranton’s new $35 million Center for Rehabilitation Education.

This was a monumental effort and required close coordination with the City of Scranton and municipal officials to execute successfully.  A few details of “the pour”:

  • Nearly 900 cubic yards of concrete required 85 truckloads of structural concrete
  • The foundation mat is 4 feet thick
  • 18 concrete trucks were circuiting and unloading concrete to workers throughout the day
  • Two concrete batch plants were required to satisfy the onsite demand
  • Concrete was poured at the rate of 150 cubic yards per hour

The Center for Rehabilitation Education is Quandel’s fifth project for the University of Scranton!  http://www.quandel.com/project/university-of-scranton-new-rehab-center/
