Vertical (High Rise) buildings are 8-30 story tall buildings, which require a mechanical vertical transport system, such as elevators. These building are typically constructed using either semi-rigid or rigid frame systems for their construction.
Vertical (High Rise) projects are often complex with many different mixes, specification restraints, limited road access, minimal lay down areas, difficult pumping configurations, and high volume requirements. BURNCO offers a wide range of mixes and admixtures, which have a stellar track record on these kinds of projects. Sometimes, a simple additional admixture can provide a simple solution in a multifaceted situation. On these kind of projects, having the right team can be critical to the success of the project. Our sales staff is experienced in these types of buildings and can help troubleshoot potential issues before they become a problem. Often being ahead of the curve makes or breaks a project staying on time and on budget.
