CEMEX successfully promotes concrete’s sustainability and replaces asphalt on large project

Date published: October 19, 2011

CEMEX in the USA will supply an additional 16,000 cubic yards of ready-mix concrete to the Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s administrative complex after demonstrating the long-term environmental benefits of concrete paving for a portion of the project that originally specified asphalt. The utility district plans to build a six-story office structure and three maintenance facilities surrounded by a “sea of pavement” on a 30-acre site.

Over a year ago, CEMEX began meeting with the contractors vying for the utility district’s administrative complex project. When the winning contractor was selected, the CEMEX team shifted into high gear. As certified members of the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) organization, several CEMEX managers stressed the pivotal advantages of concrete to help gain the coveted, internationally recognized LEED green building certification for such a project.

“We caught the contractor’s attention and pushed from start to finish,” concluded Curt Higgins, VP/GM Sacramento-North Nevada, CEMEX in the USA. “It was the team effort that separated us from the competition and allowed us to capture paving that would have gone to asphalt.”

CEMEX continually works to ensure that it remains the supplier of choice for its customers. Through the company’s commitment to teamwork, high quality products, and reliable service, CEMEX looks to create sustainable value for all of its customers.
