44 Cubic Yards

That was the amount of concrete delivered to us on Friday and that is about 132,000 lbs of aggregate, water and cement (Not to mention Fly Ash). Relative to our building mass, it's the equivalent of a 38' long wall x 13' tall x 12" thick, plus a party wall that is 8'-9" tall x 33' in length and 20" thick.

A day prior to the concretes delivery, the foundation sub and his crew were sandwiching this double rebar grid with their concrete forms.

On Friday, the pump trucks were used to transfer the concrete from the concrete trucks into the forms.

Our testing consultants @ International Geotechnical Laboratories were back performing their tests to insure the concretes quality.
