Seretta Houston HQ

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Combining the best in jointless floor slab technology and structural micro-rebar concrete reinforcement enabled this facility to be placed with no control joints. Both the 6” thick warehouse slab and 5” thick office slab used only 9 lbs. per cubic yard of Helix(R) Micro-Rebar and 100 lbs. of Komponent shrinkage-compensating cement additive to achieve this innovative joint free slab solution. Integrating these two high-performance technologies allowed a 70% reduction in traditional reinforcement, eliminated the cost of cutting, treating and maintaining control joints, improved the project schedule, and reduced labor costs for the floor slab installation This was the first implementation of Helix (R) with CTS Komponent. Many of the same performance-based principles used to design the 2018 Tilt Wall Demo were used in the design of this slab.
