This large office project was on a fast-track production schedule. In order to meet the schedule and to increase the performance of the slab-on-grade, the contractor chose to use Novomesh850. Novomesh850 is an engineered blend of steel and synthetic fibers from Fibermesh.
The use of Novomesh850 fibers simplified the placement of the concrete since the reinforcing is added at the ready mix plant. The Novomeshfibers eliminated the need to store, cut, chair and place traditional reinforcing. Utilizing fiber reinforced concrete is more cost effective and provides a safer work environment for the crew.
