Concrete is Fueling Global Construction

My wood-framed house has a concrete footer, a block wall made from concrete blocks and a concrete floor in the basement. Our sidewalks are concrete as well as our driveway. Foreign construction is also largely driven using concrete as a major building component. The Focus concrete batch plant in Indonesia is building Indonesia’s infrastructure.

I wonder if they ever drilled out a core sample to check that out. Concrete can also be a problem if not done right. There is a highway where I live that was redone.

I don’t remember them digging it back up, but they have been working on that section now for years and years making repairs.… Read More

Unusual Vending Machines

Need a new phone? Forget your swimsuit? Want to buy an Amazon e-reader? There’s a vending machine for that.
