Stadler Rail’s US headquarters and manufacturing facility
Salt Lake City, UT, USA
The 230,000 square-feet (21,000 m2), $50 million facility is less than two miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport. Situated on a 62-acre site, the facility comprises multiple halls (each about 45,000 square feet/4,100 m2) and was completed in about 18 months by the Wadsworth Construction Company.
The concrete used for the facility’s raft slab, or frost-protected shallow foundation, was supplied by American Eagle, the project’s ready-mix supplier. Treated with PENETRON ADMIX to protect against the groundwater levels at the site, the concrete is now resistant to concrete deterioration caused by chemical attack, freeze-thaw cycles and corrosion, while withstanding hydrostatic pressure at the site.
