CEMEX provides concrete solution for one of the biggest planned residential and business complexes in Tel-Aviv, Israel

Date published: February 25, 2013

CEMEX in Israel will supply approximately 150,000 cubic meters of ready-mix concrete to build a planned luxury residential neighborhood on a 100,000 square meter plot in downtown Tel-Aviv, Israel. Formerly the Farmers’ Wholesale Market, the plot is also planned to encompass commercial and business centers, a school and children’s day-care center, a country club, a large park, a museum, and a huge underground parking lot—creating one of the biggest residential and business centers in the Tel-Aviv area.

The initial stage of the project requires approximately 50,000 cubic meters of ready-mix concrete to construct the foundations for eleven 17-story residential buildings. The total quantity of concrete for basements, parking lots, public facilities, schools, day-care center, and a mall for the project is around 100,000 cubic meters.

Due to the size and location of the project, the logistics are challenging. The casts in the initial stage of the project consist of a number of concrete foundations of up to 4,000 cubic meters each that take place every Thursday morning and require an average of approximately 24 hours to accomplish. CEMEX uses about 60 ready-mix trucks for every cast. In addition to tests conducted at an external laboratory, the company’s technologists attend each cast to ensure quality control. Thanks to careful planning, work is progressing on time and on schedule.

As this project illustrates, CEMEX continually works to develop solutions to customers’ increasingly complex challenges. Leveraging years of experience, a worldwide pool of knowledge, and state-of-the-art expertise, the company delivers integrated value-added products and services that fulfill customers’ demanding performance requirements.
