A unique skyscraper poured entirely with a single ProAll Reimer Mixer is garnering international attention. Concrete Engineering International magazine, a publication of The Concrete Society, recently highlighted the tower project in a feature article.
“For Sholem and Yoram Cimet, choosing a volumetric mixer meant a solution to several significant problems, and it was a vital component of the project’s success. However, as Yoram describes, the ramifications of this project may stretch much further. ‘Having the production of concrete on-site made a huge difference in the building’s construction. It was very cost-effective and proved to be a fast method of construction. I’m pretty sure other construction companies will start looking at the method and adopt it, as it worked wonders for us and I’m sure it would for anyone else. I’d like to say that I think the way this building has been constructed and the way it was designed architecturally and structurally will change the methods of construction in Mexico City and maybe worldwide.'”
