Averitt Express – Round Rock, TX

Round Rock, TX - 2019

Project Description

Averitt Express, in Round Rock, TX, specified fibers be used in their 45,000 sq ft project. The pavement laid was 7 in to 8 in with a broom finish and consisted of dock areas, dolly paths, and concrete ramps. For this project 4,800 lb of FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fiber reinforced concrete was used with a fiber dosage of 3.0 lb/cu yd. The startup of this project was originally delayed several months mostly due to wet weather. Since there was no steel requirement the contractor was able to expedite the completion. This saved the owner both time and money despite the delay. In addition, the fibers added to the concrete increased durability to this high traffic area. This was one of the first few projects that both the contractor and the ready mixer have done in the Round Rock or Austin area and was a great introduction to FORTA fibers for these companies.

Key Points:

  • Increased Durability
