The Central Artery Project
"The Big Dig"
Project: The Fort Point Channel Section of the
Central Artery Project
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Product: ADVA® Superplasticizer
Concrete Supplier: Bardon Trimount
The Challenge . . .
The Central Artery Tunnel Project is North America's largest construction
project. In the Fort Point Channel section of this massive project, tunnel
sections are constructed in a confined casting platform under tight specifications.
Constructing these segments requires a need to control the heat of hydration,
limit mix temperature and curtail thermal shrinkage cracking.
The Solution . . .
ADVA Superplasticizer helps manage these issues and provides high strength,
workability and finishability in a wide range of applications throughout
