The Salesforce Tower in San Francisco and the Panorama Tower in Miami are two of the tallest towers under construction in the USA.

“We are proud to contribute in the evolution of the nation’s skylines and to partner with some of the most renowned architects, developers, and suppliers in the world. These buildings need strong foundations, and those foundations start with Cemex,” said Ignacio Madridejos, president of Cemex USA.

On the West Coast, the Salesforce Tower will become the tallest building in San Francisco once its 61 floors are completed. For this 1.4 million square-foot (about 130,000 square meters) construction project, more than 130 ready-mix concrete trucks from Cemex’s plants in the San Francisco region have carried out an 18-hour pour to supply 7,300 of the approximately 12,000 cubic yards of concrete required for the job. This marked the second-largest mat pour in the history of the city, said Cemex.

On the East Coast, Cemex USA has provided concrete for the foundation of Miami’s new Panorama Tower, an 83-story building that will become the tallest residential structure on the eastern seaboard south of New York City. For this project, Cemex USA poured more than 11,600 cubic yards of concrete over 23 hours—the largest single mat pour ever completed in Miami for what is said to be the largest building foundation in the history of the state of Florida.
