• THAT’S A FACT
    If America’s 47,744 miles of interstate highways were paved with concrete, 10,989,557 gallons of fuel would be saved each day.
  • EAR TO THE GROUND
    Service Life Engineering has become its own powerful field of study with immense impact on the future.
  • THAT’S A FACT
    Concrete is a light color, which reflects from 33 to 50 per cent more light than asphalt, and can even lower the average town temperature by six degrees.
