CEMEX USA supplies concrete for luxury project
Published by Lucy Stewardson,
CEMEX USA has announced that it is expected to deliver an estimated 155 000 yd3 of ready-mixed concrete to supply the construction of The Estates at Acqualina in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.
The US$1.8 billion luxury apartment project, developed by the Trump Group (no relation to the president) and built by general contractor Coastal Construction, will include two 50 storey towers with a total of 247 units. The south tower will have 154 units, and the north tower will have 93 units. The project broke ground on May 2018 with unit sales beginning in 2015.
Apartments at The Estates of Acqualina range in price from US$4.2 million to US$14 million, with the penthouses going for upwards of US$35 million. Unit sizes range from 3200 ft2 to 5600 ft2 for the residences, and from 6225 ft2 to 10 000 ft2 for the penthouses. The project will also include 50 000 ft2 of amenity space.
More than 275 CEMEX professionals and roughly 160 CEMEX ready-mixed trucks recently supplied over 8000 yd3 of ready-mixed concrete for subcontractor RS Concrete, executing a continuous mat pour for the north tower’s foundation. CEMEX supplied more than 9000 yd3 of concrete for the south tower’s foundation late last year and, to date, has provided more than 40 000 yd3 for the overall project.
“A project like this where no expense has been spared to deliver an unrivaled luxury experience can obviously have their choice of suppliers,” said Jeff Bobolts, CEMEX USA Regional President – Florida Region. “They chose CEMEX because they know we are committed to delivering operational excellence at every stage of the process, while ensuring that our clients’ construction timetables are kept on track. CEMEX is proud to supply high-quality materials from our strong Florida network that consists of two active cement plants, five distribution terminals, more than 20 aggregates facilities, 80 ready-mixed plants, 13 block plants, and a fleet of over 1000 trucks.”
