Concrete International & Concrete Construction Magazine

FORTA-FERRO® was mentioned in both Concrete International and Concrete Construction magazines for its appearance in “Stealth”, a 33-foot-high concrete sculpture located in Atlanta, Georgia. President of Sinclair Construction Group stated, “The quality of that fiber and how it finishes is second to none. I really think that’s the best fiber on the market.”

Concrete International Magazine

FORTA-FERRO® was mentioned in the February 2015 issue of CONCRETE INTERNATIONAL magazine. In 2013, the Fort Randall Dam project in southeast South Dakota won the FORTA® Project Teamwork award, for exemplary team effort by Mike Smith, Larry Nelson, Bob Grace, and Eduardo Tartuce to secure the job. This unique project involved a fiber-reinforced 8” thick topping on the Ft. Randall spillway, replacing a grid of conventional temperature-steel rebar, as well as over 20,000 dowels intended to serve as connectors to the existing slab. The success of the project was reported in a more detailed paper last spring to the U.S. Dam Safety Council by lead project civil engineer, Clinton Powell P.E. FORTA-FERRO®, used at a dosage of 5.0 lbs./cu yd, is called out by name on pg. 50 of the article, and is lauded as a major contribution to the shrinkage-reducing success of the project.
