Video: 24-hour, 22,700 tonne concrete pour in US

The foundation pour for Miami’s Brickell Flatiron project required 150 mixing trucks, carrying 1,250 truckloads, to place approximately 22,700 tonnes of concrete

The following video shows the foundation pour for Brickell Flatiron, a 64-storey tower that is currently under construction in Miami.

The job, which took place over a 24-hour period in January 2017, required almost 150 mixing trucks, carrying 1,250 truckloads, to pour nearly 22,700 tonnes of concrete.

A crew of 700 construction workers poured the foundation for the condominium, which is being developed by Ugo Colombo.

The concrete was placed into a hole that had been excavated for the tower’s mat, which sits atop 700 30.5m steel pilings.

The 549-unit building was designed by architect, Luis Revuelta. The concrete pour was orchestrated by GC Moss & Associates.

The 224m tower is set to become one of the tallest residential structures in the US, following its scheduled completion in 2019.
