There’s a major overhaul happening at one of the busiest airports in the US, and we’re there, onsite, sharing techniques that help save time, money, and manpower.
The reconstruction project of LaGuardia Airport started in 2016 with Skanska – one of the world’s largest infrastructure firms – as the lead contractor. With an estimated completion date in 2021, and a multi-billion dollar budget, the airport is being completely rebuilt: new terminals, new ramps, and more.
Our Ply-Krete® FS 350 Armorless Joint System selected for the roadway approaches to the new terminals at LaGuardia offered the contractor new and innovative ways to place the temporary forms, pour the elastomeric concrete nosing material, and then strip the forms quickly and effectively soon after the nosing material cured.
“The new procedures & techniques we implemented for this project allowed for the install to happen with speed and accuracy, which is what you want for a project of this scope,” said Bob Hart, Polyset Sales Manager – Expansion Joint Systems.
As a NYS MBE certified company, Polyset’s involvement met the project’s WMBE requirement.
