Berkeley Electric Cooperative built a new facility for the Johns Island district in South Carolina to accommodate the rapid growth of the community. Contractors reached out to FORTA for a fiber conversion to replace #4 rebar 12” with FORTA-FERRO at a dosage of 3.0 lb/cu yd for the 5” pavement slab and a 4.5 lb/cu yd for the 8” pavement slab. Non-corrosive fibers were chosen to replace steel reinforcements saving on labor costs and decreasing the construction schedule. Contractors were able to increase each pour size and eliminate the need for lifts to unload rebar at the job site.
