Spring Training Facilities – Maryvale, AZ

Maryvale, AZ - 2018

Project Description

A major league baseball team is renovating their spring training camp facilities in Maryvale, AZ and chose to replace specified steel with FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers. A new two-story
building will be constructed, running the length of the area from home plate gate plaza to a connection with the existing clubhouse. For this slab-on-metal-deck application, the owners replaced specified steel with FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers. This project is 4,000 cu yd in total with a fiber dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd. By using fibers to reinforce the concrete, the contractors can pump it to the deck level and avoid having to use steel reinforcements that are hazardous to workers. Reinforcing concrete with fibers also provide cost savings because you do not have to pay to store the steel or potentially deal with lawsuits if a worker is hurt tying or placing rebar. FORTA-FERRO fibers aid in plastic shrinkage cracking, providing a superior finish throughout the years.

Key Points:

  • Reduced Shrinkage Cracking
  • Cost Savings
  • Superior Finish
