Central Concrete Supply Co., Inc., a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ:USCR) joined fellow contractors to celebrate the Levi’s® Stadium ribbon-cutting. Initiating its first placement on May 21, 2012, Central Concrete supplied an estimated 80,000 cubic yards of concrete for the auger cast piles and the overall stadium structure, sidewalks and architectural concrete.
In choosing Central Concrete’s product, the San Francisco 49ers and the Turner/Devcon Construction team demonstrated their commitment to sustainability. The mixes selected are estimated to reduce the overall carbon footprint by 23 million pounds of CO2, as compared to traditional concrete.
As noted by the San Francisco 49ers, “When the gates of Levi’s Stadium open in August 2014, the stadium will be the first United States professional football stadium to have achieved LEED Gold certification. Visitors and guests may view a live dashboard display featuring current energy measurements, water and air monitors, and other dynamic green features as the building operates daily.”
“We were honored to have been selected for this project,” said Jeff Davis, vice president and general manager, Central Concrete Supply Co., Inc. “This continues our long legacy of supplying concrete for several landmark sports facilities.”
Central Concrete is currently supplying concrete for the San Jose Earthquakes Soccer Stadium. Central Concrete has also supplied concrete for (1) AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants; (2) the SAP Center at San Jose, home of the San Jose Sharks hockey team; (3) Stanford University’s football stadium; and (4) Santa Clara University’s Stephen Schott Baseball Stadium.
