America’s Infrastructure, Campuses, and Housing Development Drive the Future of Sustainable Concrete Construction

Looking toward the future, the American construction industry is focusing more than ever on long-term sustainability. Through the widespread adoption of more environmentally friendly concrete materials and greener construction methods, the built industry strives to reduce its carbon footprint while creating structures that look better and last longer. Bringing these trends into sharp focus is […]

Reducing embodied carbon in concrete construction

Mixing water-repelling pore blockers with concrete helps minimize a project’s carbon footprint while maximizing the lifetime of new construction. The construction industry’s use of concrete accounts for a huge percentage of the carbon emissions we generate as a society. Mostly, that’s due simply to the sheer amount of concrete we use. To put it into […]

Navigating California’s Updated 2024 CALGreen Building Code with Hycrete

Always at the forefront of sustainability initiatives for the commercial construction industry, the state of California is adopting a new CALGreen building code in 2024.

Officially going into effect July 1, 2024, the new CALGreen measures are an updated version of the existing 2022 code – widely considered to be America’s first sustainability-focused standard for greener, cleaner construction. Looking toward the future, another updated version of the CALGreen code is slated to take effect in 2026.

Mitigating Corrosion in Concrete Reinforcement to Reduce Structural Maintenance and Repairs

When left unchecked, corrosion in concrete steel reinforcement adds up to extremely costly building maintenance and repairs. Corrosion typically begins when moisture is wicked through the concrete via capillary absorption, then proceeds down until it reaches the steel reinforcement elements. Rebar corrosion inevitably compromises the structural integrity of the building, requiring extensive repairs or full-on […]

Understanding Reinforced Concrete Corrosion and Its Impact on Structural Integrity

Concrete corrosion and the accompanying breakdown process can ruin the aesthetics of any building. Surface stains, small cracks and weathering will quickly make the exterior look old, worn-out and tattered, creating an eyesore and potentially slashing the value of the property. However, it’s the deeper corrosion that reaches rebar and other reinforcing steel elements which […]
