SiteMix – McLeod Road Transfer Station Replacement
- Orlando, FL
LDCC was chosen as a fill material on this project to decrease time of installation and bear all of the weight of the tipping floor and structure. The six-person crew installed 6,600 cubic yards of non-permeable LDCC at an average rate of 175 cubic yards per hour. The LDCC was placed using four-foot lifts at a maximum heigh of eight feet. The use of cellular concrete not only provides greater stability and compressive strength, it also provides a significant reduction in labor and shortens the construction timetable when compared to more traditional materials.
