Concrete Reinforcement Geogrid Excels in Calgary Project

The City of Calgary wanted to reduce construction and maintenance costs of concrete pedestrian sidewalks. The traditional approach used by the city was to use thick, unreinforced concrete slabs. Yearly rehabilitation work was required to repair major cracking of the slabs shortly after installation. Project planners looked for a reinforcement system that would not be susceptible to corrosion and t... »
