The Reinforced Earth Company (RECO) and ECOncrete Tech are collaborating to bring concrete to life in Australia!   Testing of the patented bio-enhancing admixture is now complete, with compliance to Australian Standard 1478.1 achieved.   When the admixture is included in a bespoke concrete product, designed with the structural and biological requirements for your project in mind, not only does the concrete become bio-active but it also has the added bonus of increased structural & durability properties.

Nicholson Road Bridge Over Rail Project

Due to the small project footprint on the Nicholson Road Bridge Over Rail Project, completed earlier this year in Perth, the bridge abutments needed to be constructed in 2 stages.   Adding to the complexity of the works, the beams were required to be lifted into place by 3 cranes.   Detailed assessment was carried out by RECO engineers and the Reinforced Earth® walls were designed specifically to withstand the high crane loads applied.   Follow this link to read more.
