Concrete Structures: Strong, Durable and Efficient

From dams and bridges to commercial and residential buildings and modern agricultural complexes aboveground, to culverts, sewers and graywater management systems belowground, concrete structures define our society and make our activities possible.

The cement and concrete industries continue to introduce sound, new technologies to meet municipal social, economic, and environmental challenges and strengthen our communities for generations to come. Concrete mixes can be varied to suit the purpose of virtually any structure or design, any location or type of stress. Well-designed and properly built, concrete structures of all kinds will serve their purpose for 75 years or more, needing little maintenance or repair.
