Description

Yard #32 has been providing the concrete that builds Chicago for more than 60 years. From the high-strength concrete of Trump Tower, the flowing balconies of Aqua, to Chicago's soon-to-be third tallest skyscraper Vista Tower (currently under construction), concrete produced at this facility helps make architectural visions a reality. VCNA 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.

Visitor Experience

Take a guided tour of Yard #32 to see the unique material-handling systems and processes that allow VCNA Prairie Material to supply the large volumes of concrete needed for today’s tall buildings. Visitors will have the opportunity to sit in a concrete truck.
