The Big House gets a big makeover
High-performance Tercem 3000 blended cement is playing a key role in the $226 million renovation and expansion of Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. The project's Building Team, which includes Clawson & Killins Concrete Companies and Walker Parking Consultants, specified the cement for major portions of the three-year project—including construction of a replacement bowl—for its high strength, durability, and ideal placing and finishing qualities. Tercem 3000 is a blend of slag cement, silica fume, and Portland cement that provides improved, 28-day strength, reduced permeability, improved rheology and pumpability of concrete (especially in hot weather), reduced concrete bleeding, and improved resistance to alkali-silica reaction when compared with standard cement products.
