A design/build contractor has completed the largest single concrete pour in recent history at the Howard Hughes Center in Los Angeles. The Center is owned by Arden Realty and being developed by Lowe Enterprises Commercial Group. On January 6, a fleet of 110 concrete trucks converged on site at 7 a.m. In under 12 hours, crews poured approximately 500 cubic yards per hour totaling 5,600 cubic yards (22.7 million pounds) of concrete and laid 700 tons of rebar, equivalent to 130 miles. Along with the trucks, six boom pumps, an 80-ton crane and 225 workers were working in tight conditions more than three stories below street level."
