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.
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.
