CEMEX supplies 85,000 m³ of ready-mix concrete for major new shopping center in Germany

Date published: December 8, 2011

CEMEX has been made supplier of choice for specialty extra-strength ready-mix concrete for the construction of a 44,000 m² shopping center in the city of Leipzig, Germany. Concreting for this mega-project began in February 2011 and structural work will continue until March 2012, in time for an opening in the autumn of 2012.

The shopping center, named Höfe am Brüh, will accommodate 130 shops on four levels as well as a parking lot with approximately 820 spaces. CEMEX is part of a joint-supply operation that is employing between 14 and 18 mixer trucks to deliver 500 to 800 m³ of ready-mix concrete every day. Keeping a steady supply of materials flowing is especially challenging because of the project’s location.

The shopping center is located at the heart of the city, which places it in premium real estate that is very attractive for store owners and shoppers alike, but the narrow access routes and unloading sites pose logistical delivery challenges for the concrete suppliers and other site-related traffic. CEMEX has been able to overcome these obstacles relying on its worldwide knowledge pool of concrete logistics. As one of the leading suppliers of ready-mix concrete in the world, CEMEX has the know-how and expertise to deliver materials in the most challenging conditions, be they weather or logistics-related.

At a global level, CEMEX does not “simply manufacture concrete”, but develops solutions based on the thorough knowledge and application of concrete technology. Leveraging years of experience, a worldwide pool of knowledge, and state-of-the-art expertise about the different concrete constituents and their interaction, CEMEX offers its customers “concrete by design”—tailor-made concrete.
