Cor-Tuf UHPC chairman Douglas Darling is adamant that the Miami condo collapse didn’t have to happen. “People didn’t need to die,” says Darling. “New, available concrete technology is impervious to water and chemicals, and can be used to repair failing, traditional concrete, and to build new structures that will not fail.”

What makes a good building material? In our opinion, it must be strong and durable; light, with minimum design constraints; easily installed and compatible with common techniques; and long-lasting, created from the start to protect against damage.
At Cor-Tuf, we’ve been using classic ready-mix techniques with our Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) for some time. One of our latest projects was completing a ready-mix bridge overlay job in upstate New York to demonstrate how easy UHPC is as part of everyday construction.
Concrete is the foundation of modern construction. Its strength and durability enables it to support heavy structures over long periods of time. Compressive strength is the prominent concrete specification, but tensile, flexural, and other properties can play a significant role in modern designs.
is the world’s preeminent authority on concrete research and industry standards. Based in Michigan and founded in 1904, ACI develops technical standards and certification criteria for the production, installation, and maintenance of concrete. Building and design codes at the local, state, federal, and international levels increasingly rely on ACI publications to establish specifications for concrete construction.
