Civil Construction UDOT - Provo Canyon Utah
- Product used: Barchip ‘Kyodo’ 48mm
- Project details
- Project name: Provo Canyon
- Project owner: Utah Department of Transportation
- Project Location: Wasatch County Provo Utah
- Project start date: June 2005
- Project Completion: November 2006
- Contractor: Ames Construction
- Concrete Supplier: Westroc Inc.
- Shotcrete Contractor: Commercial Shotcrete
Provo Canyon’s original specification called for 300 Joules using a minimum of 100 lbs/yd of steel fibres tested to ASTM C1550 Centrally Loaded Panels, but working through Ames Construction, Commercial Shotcrete, and Westroc Concrete, Barchip was trialled at 8 lbs/yd and 10 lbs/yd meeting 340 Joules and 400 Joules respectfully.
The Utah Department of Transportation officials approved the use of Barchip because of the superior performance and the additional benefits offered, including:
- Environmentally friendly
- Safer than using steel fibber - worker protection
- Cost effective
- Easily handled
- Superior mixing
- Easily pumped vertically through 2-inch steel lines.
Barchip was able to meet the stringent specification as well as offering the project a significant cost advantage.
Barchip was an easy solution to a highly technical project that provided extra toughness for over 15,000 cubic yards of Shotcrete shot on this project.
Barchip – as tough as steel and does not rust.
