International Paper


Phoenix, Arizona

International Paper is integral to the City of Phoenix, helping to keep the city environmentally friendly and facilitating the local “Shred-A-Thon” program. Constant demand for the facility to stay open and operational presented several challenges to replacement of a worn-out, 225-square-yard concrete slab.

Concrete contractor Beecroft Concrete Inc. and Rock Solid Concrete developed a concrete mix reinforced with Tuf-Strand SF, based on the facility’s criteria of long-term durability, economy and speed of construction. Quickly placed between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, the concrete slab shows no signs of wear and tear.
