Company Reinforced Structures, Inc. Industry Concrete Location Tampa, Florida USA Project for Salvador Dali Museum Project Length 2 years Project Value $5.2 million On Center Software Solution On-Screen Takeoff® R einforced Structures, Inc. (RSI) of Tampa, Florida was started in 2003 by Steve Whitely. RSI is a full service concrete subcontractor that works throughout the state of Florida and has been branching into Maryland. RSI excels in dewatering, excavation, formwork, reinforcing, hoisting, and concrete placement. RSI's experience and knowledge enables them to deliver projects on time and within budget. RSI's con- crete construction management package starts with the pre-construction phase of the project which includes planning, estimating, and plan review. The team of experts successfully handles a variety of structures including post- tension, pre-cast joists, flat slab, composite construction, standard reinforcement, and hollow core. M U S E U M P R O J E C T The concrete construction of the Salvador Dali Museum (SDM) in St. Petersburg, FL was a huge undertaking for RSI. This was RSI's first project using self-consolidating concrete (SCC). SCC is a typical concrete mix doused with superplasticizer admixtures to make the mix highly flowable while maintaining proper aggregate segregation. SCC's lack of bug holes and smooth texture after the forms had been removed left a pristine finish that the architect on this project desired. Another challenge was to ensure that the structure could withstand Florida's unique weather and ocean front environment.
