CEMEX supplies concrete for Fort Lauderdale’s tallest building
Published by Robyn Wainwright,
CEMEX is supplying concrete for the 100 Las Olas tower, a new high-rise residential and commercial space at the Fort Lauderdale coastline.
Once completed, the 46-floor structure, which includes 238 guest rooms, 121 luxury condos, and a fine dining/retail space, will be the tallest building in Fort Lauderdale, towering nearly 500 feet above the coastline.
CEMEX is supplying subcontractor Baker Concrete with more than 40 000 cubic yards of custom concrete for the project, which is expected to be completed in 2H18.
“The concrete mixes we created for this project used both CEMEX aggregates and cement, so this is really a team effort across our Florida operations,” said Kirk Light, President of CEMEX USA’s Florida Region. “We are committed to providing superior experiences for our valued customers like Baker Concrete, who use our products to help build a better future in South Florida.”
