Cemex, S.A.B. de C.V. has announced that Cemex USA is contributing to the foundations of two of the tallest, most innovative skyscrapers in the US: the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco and the new Panorama Tower in Miami. From coast to coast, Cemex USA is supplying more than 23 000 cubic yards (more than 17 500 cubic meters) of concrete for two of the largest mat pours in these cities.

“Our customers are at the centre of everything we do, and these projects exemplify our commitment to providing top quality service and products for industry-leading projects,” said Ignacio Madridejos, President of Cemex USA. “We are proud to contribute in the evolution of the nation’s skylines and to partner with some of the most renowned architects, developers, and suppliers in the world. These buildings need strong foundations, and those foundations start with Cemex.”

On the West Coast, the Salesforce Tower will become the tallest building in San Francisco once its 61 floors are completed. For this 1.4 million square-foot (about 130 000 square meters) construction project, more than 130 ready-mix concrete trucks from Cemex’s plants in the San Francisco region performed an 18 hour pour to supply 7300 (around 5500 cubic meters) of the approximately 12 000 cubic yards (over 9100 cubic meters) of concrete required for the job. This marked the second-largest mat pour in the history of the city.

On the East Coast, Cemex USA provided concrete for the foundation of Miami’s new Panorama Tower, an 83 story building that will become the tallest residential structure on the eastern seaboard south of New York City. For this project, Cemex USA poured more than 11 600 cubic yards (approximately 8800 cubic meters) of concrete over 23 hours—the largest single mat pour ever completed in Miami for the largest building foundation in the history of the state of Florida.
