This project includes the construction of a 25-floor high end luxury condominium building off Bayshore Blvd. in Tampa Florida. Within the buildings foundation there are 130 drilled shafts ranging from two to four feet in diameter and up to 71 feet deep, supported by 2,650 cubic yards of concrete delivered by over 285 trucks.
Slag cement was used on this project in multiple mix designs, however, the most important usage was on the 10,000 psi mix used for columns. Argos was able to use a 50% slag cement (grade 120) mix to achieve the high strength requirements and maintain concrete temperatures below 100 F during the hot summer months in Tampa. The strength gain along with cooler concrete temperatures were the most important contributions slag cement made on this project.
