Green Building with Pervious Concrete & Insulated Concrete Forms
In recent years, the construction industry has made significant strides towards becoming more green and sustainable. Concrete plays a major role in this movement and can be a source of many LEED credits for contractors.
Pervious Concrete is a unique mixture of concrete in which the fine aggregate, or sand, is all but eliminated, thus allowing water to permeate the hardened concrete. The benefits of pervious concrete include the elimination of large retention ponds, replenishment of ground water, and reduction of heat because of the light color to name a few. Go to www.perviouspavement.org for more technical details.
Insulated Concrete Forms, or ICF, & Tilt Up Concrete are two methods of building where the structure itself is made from concrete making it highly resistant to weather like tornadoes and hurricanes, and extremely energy efficient. Once erected, contractors can employ various methods of exterior finishes to create a decorative appearance to a highly durable building!
Employee and customer safety is paramount to the success of Capital Concrete. Our goal is that every employee leaves work in the same fashion as when they came. To make this possible, Capital Concrete, Inc. trains and retrains all employees on safe work practices, defensive driving techniques, and accident prevention. We empower employees to abstain from any task they believe to be unsafe and to make recommendations on corrections, thus making safety a cooperative team effort. As a result, Capital Concrete, Inc. has received numerous safety awards from the Virginia Ready Mix Concrete Association and most recently the Drive Safe Hampton Roads Employer Safety Award.
Capital Concrete Testing Laboratory
Quality is a word that is synonymous with Capital Concrete. The entire Capital team from president, dispatcher, to drivers, strives to exceed customers’ expectations by delivering a superior product with excellent service. The quality control department, headed by Scott Wooten and Keith Maddrey, plays a critical role in concrete production. All mixes are thoroughly tested before being used to ensure optimum performance. To guarantee a pour goes smoothly, Capital Concrete, Inc. tests the concrete once it is batched at the plant and schedules a field technician on the job.
