Green Concrete at Manhattan Construction Sites

Freedom Tower at Ground ZeroA new kind of green concrete is being poured at construction sites all over Manhattan.

The iCrete system has been chosen for many of Manhattan's new high -rises. It touts a 40 percent reduction in green house gases, advanced mix designs, and higher performance and quality control.

The concrete designed for the Freedom Tower at ground zero is the highest strength concrete ever poured in the history of New York.

Less than a year since its introduction at the Freedom Tower the new concrete has been poured in over 30 construction sites from lower Manhattan to the Upper West Side including Frank Gehry’s Beekman Tower and 11 Times Square.

Since less cement is required for the iCRETE system it offers physical, material and environmental benefits.
