Island Honda has been selling and servicing vehicles in the Comox Valley since 1986, and it’s been growing since then. Due to this growth, Island Honda needed their construction team to build a larger modern facility that would meet the needs of an increasing business that was aiming to accommodate its sales, service, and parts departments.
Brock White Canada Co. approached the construction team and recommended they use the integral hardening admixture, Hard-Cem, to create a high-quality, abrasion-and-impact-resistant concrete floor. Such a floor with its full-depth hardening would significantly enhance the functionality and life span of the Island Honda facility.
As the construction team’s contractor, Kinetic Construction Ltd. took the time to consider what this enhancement could do, they recognized it would be cost-effective to incorporate Hard-Cem into Hyland Ready-Mix’s ready-mix plant.
Once Hyland Ready-Mix added the admixture, they appreciated its ease of use and how it could assure quality control for Island Honda. In turn, they found that it created a clean construction site with the potential to give Island Honda’s facility LEED credits.
Hard-Cem is an Integral Hardening Admixture used to increase Abrasion and Erosion resistance of concrete. Hard-Cem is added to the concrete at the time of batching to increase the hardness of the concrete and extend concrete wear life. It outperforms and overcomes deficiencies of labor intensive surface applied hardeners, and is used to enhance durability...
