Crossland Construction – Aquarium Sub-Grade Backfill

  • Branson, MO

Crossland Construction chose to utilize cellular concrete for the sub-grade backfill of the new Branson Aquarium due to the ease and speed versus using traditional #57 stone. Cellular concrete was chosen because the #57 stone was going to have to be hauled in and lifted via clamshell over the CMU wall that had already been constructed.

CellFill installed a total of 4,380 cubic yards of cellular concrete around the underground pipe network for the aquarium’s utilities. The crew accomplished this in nine working days. A portion of the cellular concrete was pumped successfully in below-freezing temperatures, allowing the project to continue with no delay.
