Concrete is a complex product. It requires a lot of experience, extensive knowledge, and even finesse to develop concrete for the unique buildings and structures we see around us. We at Thomas Concrete have extensive experience in developing the optimal concrete for many different projects with widely varying requirements. Together with our customers, we contribute to building a sustainable society.

Thomas Concrete is playing a pivotal role in the construction of the 60-story 1072 West Peachtree project in Atlanta, which includes 224,000 square feet of office space and 350 residential units. From the project’s inception, we have collaborated closely with various stakeholders in the project and across Team Thomas to ensure the success of this high-profile development. Over the course of the project, we will deliver a total of 65,000 cubic yards of concrete, including a significant 4,300 cubic yard mass concrete pour containing only 25% cement. This mass pour was executed efficiently and finished ahead of schedule.

Our technical expertise was instrumental in meeting the project’s demanding specifications. The concrete mix, designed to achieve a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 181 kg/m³, also fulfilled stringent CO2 reduction and Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) requirements. These specifications are typically seen in regions with high seismic activity, underscoring the unique challenges of constructing such a tall structure. Through meticulous preplanning and extensive collaboration with the design team, we developed a high-strength, 7,000 psi concrete mix that met all performance-based criteria. The success of the initial 4,300 cubic yard pour, completed with zero rejected trucks and ahead of schedule, highlights Thomas Concrete’s ability to deliver innovative solutions and exceptional quality in complex, large-scale projects.

The 4,300 cubic yard mass pour ran continuously from Friday night to Sunday morning, all the while maintaining a critical temperature threshold.
