Lafarge’s Kansas City Ready Mix operations receives award

Lafarge North America’s Kansas City Ready Mix operations recently received six 2010 Excellence in Concrete Awards from the Concrete Promotional Group, a Kansas City-area trade association, for projects completed in the Kansas City area.

Among the six projects recognized was one of Lafarge’s sustainable construction projects. It was recognized in the Pervious Pavement Category for Lafarge’s work on KCATA Troost MAX bus service improvements. This project utilized one of Lafarge’s Ultra Series concrete blends — its pervious “tri-blend” concrete. The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority needed a lowmaintenance, aesthetically pleasing, space-saving alterative to standard concrete or asphalt. Lafarge worked with the city and proposed a pervious concrete alternative. The project was redesigned to incorporate the green alternative in areas best suited for it.

Lafarge North America also won the Overall Concrete award for its work on the Kansas City Zoo’s Polar Bear exhibit. This project utilized all of Lafarge’s value-added mixes: Agilia, Chronolia, Artevia and Ultra Series.
