Wilmington, Del.-based Pioneer Concrete has been awarded the 2006 Grand Prize Award for Cast-In-Place Concrete Frame (Inside Chapter Boundaries) by the American Concrete Institute, Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware Chapter. Recognized for excellence in design and construction, Pioneer’s winning project was the Residence at Christiana Landing, Phase 1 Apartment Tower in downtown Wilmington.
Constructed of an all-concrete frame, the apartment tower comprises 23 stories and 265,000 square feet of space. Using truss-type flying forms, each floor required one week to complete. Pioneer’s concrete mix, designed to reach strength sufficient for form stripping in two to three days, helped crews maintain a quick cycle for each level. Concrete subcontractor Healy, Long & Jevin enlisted the producer to place concrete for footings, foundation, columns, sheer walls and floors.
The Residence at Christiana Landing constitutes part of the residential revitalization of the Wilmington riverfront. Pioneer Concrete is a partner on multiple projects in the city, including a contract to provide ready mixed for Phase 2 of the Residence at Christiana Landing.
The Cast-In-Place Concrete Frame construction award recognizes outstanding concrete projects within chapter boundaries of the ACI Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware Chapter.
