U.S. Concrete Operating Company Helps Transform Manhattan's Iconic Skyline

EULESS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Eastern Concrete, a U.S. Concrete Company (NASDAQ: USCR), has been privileged to take part in reshaping Manhattan's iconic skyline with recent high profile projects that will cement the city's place as having one of the most complex, glamorous and recognizable skylines in the world.

Following completion of the standard-setting One World Trade Center (Tower 1) in Manhattan's Financial District, Eastern Concrete remains engaged in two other important and challenging projects at the symbolic site: Three World Trade Center (Tower 3) and the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) Transportation Hub.

Eastern is supplying 140,000 cubic yards of ultra-high performance, low-CO2 concrete mixes (EF Technology®) for Tower 3. The concrete mix is developed to meet high-end sustainable design and strength requirements and help achieve the LEED® Gold certification goal set by the project team - owner Silverstein Properties, architect Richard Rogers, engineer WSP Cantor Seinuk and general contractor Tishman. The project is expected to be completed by late 2013.

The Owner's drive for superior quality and experience with mass pours and reliable, temperature-controlled delivery of high strength concrete were central to selecting Eastern as the concrete supplier for Tower 3 and the Transportation Hub. Eastern Concrete has been a key member of the landmark Tower 1 project team. The New York City-based concrete producer provided 150,000 cubic yards of ready-mix concrete for the superstructure and pumped 103 stories to the highest elevation ever in the Americas -- with a concrete strength that has never been used on such scale in building construction.

"High strength, low-CO2, and workable mix designs for the new World Trade Center towers are unique and definitely at the forefront of environmentally-friendly concrete design for buildings that are stronger, cleaner and greener," said Gary Graziano, AIA, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Eastern Concrete Materials. "The entire concrete solution was custom-designed for this project and required use of the most advanced mix design and computer modelling technology in the industry."

The excitement doesn't end here for Eastern. The U.S. Concrete operating company has been selected as the initial ready-mix concrete supplier on yet another high profile and a future landmark of the Manhattan skyline: the much anticipated Hudson Yards project. Eastern's work will begin in November 2012 and will include delivery of 14,000 cubic yards of concrete for the foundation of Tower C, the largest of the towers on the southeast side of the construction site. The concrete delivery will include 3,500 cubic yards of high strength concrete (14,000 psi, 12,000 psi and 10,000 psi).

"Eastern Concrete has the largest ready-mix delivery fleet in the area and an excellent track record with complex and large-scale construction," said John Russo, Operations Manager, New York Concrete. "We are confident that Eastern has the creativity, technology and solution to get the job done in spec and on time."

Hudson Yards is an ambitious mixed-use development by the real estate firm The Related Companies. The project is designed by the New York architectural firms of SOM and KPF and considered one of New York's largest developments ever. When complete, Hudson Yards will offer more than 12,700,000 square feet of office, residential, and retail space.
