Description

Concrete from Yard 32 has supplied many of Chicago’s most iconic buildings. From the high-strength concrete base and core of Trump Tower to the flowing balconies of Aqua, concrete produced at this facility helps make architectural visions a reality. Prairie Material is a proud partner of the engineering and architectural community through its continued development of self-consolidating, high-strength concrete that can bear loads in excess of 16,000 pounds per square inch. This technology is helping to push the limits of height and beauty in architectural design.

Behind the Scenes
