Another First at NSLS-II Construction Site

Workers at the NSLS-II ring building construction site recently completed the first complicated concrete pour for the approximately 19-ft.-tall walls of the Utility Tunnel. The continuous pour was the first of its kind, as previous pours have been for footings and the foundations of footings. The construction team has estimated the entire project will use 40,000 cubic yards of concrete. To date, they have used 1,000 cubic yards, leaving 39,000 cubic yards of concrete to go!
