County Materials’ Hollowcore Plank Provides Solution for Tight Schedules and Obstacles

County Materials’ Hollowcore is preferred by industry professionals for its unmatched strength and design flexibility. Hollowcore is a durable product that can withstand the elements. It is also capable of supporting high load capacities across long spans without the need for extra support columns. County Materials works with contractors and erectors to overcome staging obstacles and provide timely solutions. 

A Minnesota-based hospital built a pedestrian bridge between its Physicians Building and East Parking Ramp as part of a recent expansion project. The bridge will provide visitors a shorter and safer route. Faced with a firm five-day timeline, project leaders relied on County Materials’ Hollowcore. The prestressed concrete planks were specified to construct the pedestrian bridge for their high-performance strength, capable of supporting high load capacities without need for support columns. 

The narrow 30-foot-deep worksite was positioned next to the hospital’s glass façade, allowing crews minimal space for crane maneuvering and hollowcore installation. Crews relied on their experience and County Materials’ precise plank sizing to successfully overcome staging challenges.
