U.S. Concrete focuses on helping architects, builders, and engineers achieve their design and building objectives. As design innovations and environmental sensibility continue to evolve, we understand the need for sustainable, low carbon concrete products that perform and help translate innovative designs into structural forms, while reducing environmental impact.
In the simplest term, concrete conserves resources by reducing the need for reconstruction, but that is not what concrete is all about. Increasingly, concrete is being recognized for it’s life cycle environmental and economical benefits, from extraction and production, to construction, maintenance and disposal. Furthermore, architects and engineers are discovering the advantages of concrete construction as the quality construction material that stands the test of time. The emerging concrete technologies are opening new possibilities for concrete architecture, and inspiring contemporary architects and designers around the world.
The use of concrete in buildings has many benefits that span all stakeholders.
