The feature article for Concrete International’s January 2022 issue comes from the collaboration of Michael Hopper (LERA Consulting Structural Engineers), Michael A. Russillo (Cobiax USA Inc.), Mike Mota (Cobiax USA Inc.), and GMS founding partner, Ramon Gilsanz.

The article, “High-Performance Concrete Flat-Plate Floor System,” discusses the technologies used to allow flat-plate concrete floor systems to achieve longer spans in the 45-50 foot range. The combination of higher-strength materials, voided slab formers, and post-tensioned systems provide an economic and environmentally friendly solution for Class A office building construction.

In addition to the authors’ work on the research project, GMS Project Engineer, Sebastian Delgado, provided significant contributions leading to the final results and publication of the article while Borys Hayda (DeSimone Consulting Engineers ) provided peer review services and advice.

Thank you to all who contributed their time and expertise to the project. We are thrilled to see it as the feature article in the first Concrete International issue of 2022.
