CIMESA, a pioneer in the use of EXEGY® by Soletanche Bachy low-carbon concrete for underground works in Mexico.

 

CIMESA is becoming a pioneer in sustainable construction for foundation elements in Mexico. The Sullivan 25 project is the first to include foundation elements cast with EXEGY® by Soletanche Bachy certified low-carbon concrete.

According to the EXEGY® by Soletanche Bachy classification of low-carbon concretes, the concrete used to cast the diaphragm wall and pillars is classified as “low-carbon”.

The project is located in the centre of Mexico City, on a plot of approximately 2,500 m². The work involves building the enclosure and foundations for an 11-storey tower and 2 basements.

To contain the soft clay soils characteristic of this region, a 50 cm thick diaphragm wall and a soil nailing system were designed. The foundations consist of piles of various diameters, deployed at a depth of 42 m.

With EXEGY® by Soletanche Bachy solutions, CIMESA is minimising the carbon footprint of its structures. We have developed formulas that reduce the carbon footprint by 35% compared with conventional concrete.

The synergy between our team of technical specialists in materials and our suppliers has enabled us to successfully implement this solution, which contributes to reducing the carbon footprint of our activities and of the projects of our clients.
