The Drury Inn
The superstructure of this hotel located along 82nd Street and I-69 was constructed entirely from reinforced concrete and post-tensioned concrete. An insulated concrete forming system (ICF) was designed and constructed to give the perimeter better insulation and sound proofing. Builder’s Concrete supplied over 6,000 cubic yards of concrete for the structure which consists of 5,000 PSI reinforced columns and 5,000 psi cast-in-place, post-tensioned decks. Tendons were pulled in 2-3 days after obtaining 3,000 PSI.
Drury Inn has made a decision to use ICF’s for the perimeter walls in almost all of their future construction. They were able to downsize their entire roof top heating and cooling units thus allowing them to save on their energy costs. Druco has used the post-tensioned ICF perimeter wall system for about 4 years. This was one of the largest ICF jobs in the state.

Home-A-Rama Willows Lot 217
This home was a featured home in the annual Home-A-Rama Show. There were a total of 112 cubic yards of exterior decorative concrete used. This home features several different patterns and textures of decorative concrete. The driveway and back patio were poured and finished using an exposed pea gravel mix. The uniformity in the finish and mix consistency gives this concrete a stunning look. The front and rear porches were poured using Sandstone integral concrete coloring. A Charcoal Release and Ashlar Slate stamp pattern were nicely used to give the concrete a beautiful look of hand laid stone tiles.
Renaissance Bay Concrete Street Pavement
Renaissance Bay site is located in the 7800 Block of Keystone Avenue. When the building project is complete, the site will house over 43 buildings and have 1.7 million square feet of new construction. The entire project will be accessed and utilized by concrete pavement in the streets.
Renaissance Bay demonstrates significant awareness for the use of concrete pavement in residential development. The concrete paved streets allow for a cleaner curb appeal, brighter ambiance with the light reflectivity, and decreased maintenance costs in the future with concrete paved streets. Stamp mixes were utilized at the crosswalk sections with integral color and stamped concrete.
Over 5,500 cubic yards of concrete was placed in the concrete streets. A majority of the concrete was designed for 4,500 psi. Additional High Early mixes were used for quicker access during the various phases of construction
Southeastern Ave. RCC
The Southeastern Sanitary Sewer Project was the revitalization of sanitary sewers and elimination of septic tanks on the east side of Indianapolis, Indiana. The project entailed running sanitary sewer utility lines down the center of numerous streets off Southeastern Avenue. Phase one of this project required each street involved to be replaced the sanitary work was complete. Due to the large increase in asphalt pricing, an alternative for Roller Compacted Concrete was accepted.
The City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works, along with Calumet Civil Contractors and Eagle Valley Contractors used the Southeastern Sanitary Sewer Project as a benchmark for sustainability. Mayor Ballard has poised the Department of Public Works to explore alternatives to complete the needed public work projects on time and within budget. The application of Roller Compacted Concrete allowed the Southeastern Project to come in within budget and move towards a green movement in residential and commercial street project.
The Southeastern Corridor Sanitary Project provided the Department of Public Works a concrete alternative for their current and future projects. Benchmarking off of the Southeastern Corridor project will allow the City of Indianapolis, cities, towns and municipalities an alternative to conventional asphalt paving for public streets.
Builder’s Concrete and Supply worked with many partners to achieve a concrete mix design that provided ease of placement, workable mix design and desired compaction. The mix design was achieved by providing a zero slump concrete mix that was delivered in dump trucks to the site. Once delivered to the job site, the mix was placed with a high density paver that achieved compactions as high as 95% of maximum dry density directly behind the paver.
