Army Base in Texas Builds with Concrete

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The U.S. Army has begun construction on the Carl R. Darnell Medical Center replacement at Ft. Hood, TX. The buildings are to include approximately 150,000 cubic yards of concrete in the concrete building frames, floors and footings. NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Vance Pool reports a cast in place parking garage for 1,700 cars was recently bid. 

"With a lower carbon footprint than competing materials and life safety advantages like greater blast resistance, the government is getting a big bang for its buck in this mega project," Pool said. "This $500 million complex utilizes concrete in many applications and should provide health care to our veterans for many decades to come."

NRMCA was first made aware of the project by Sean VanDelist while he was promoting for the Cement Council of Texas years ago.
