Cemex issued the following announcement on Oct. 9.
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today its participation in the construction of Salesforce Tower, the tallest building in San Francisco, USA. Designed to meet the city’s growing demand for residential and office space, this 61-floor building is the latest addition to San Francisco’s iconic skyline.
CEMEX participated in the Salesforce Tower project since day one, supplying materials for the foundation and construction of this approximately 325-meter-tall building. For the nearly 84,000 cubic meters of concrete needed for the project, CEMEX mobilized more than 130 ready-mix concrete trucks and performed the second-largest mat pour in San Francisco’s history.
“Our customers are at the center of everything we do, and Salesforce Tower exemplifies our commitment to providing top quality service and products for industry-leading projects,” said Ignacio Madridejos, President of CEMEX USA. “We are proud to contribute to the evolution of the nation’s skylines and 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.”
Sustainability and environmental performance were two central themes of the Salesforce Tower project. As a LEED Platinum aspirant, Salesforce Tower’s design called for utilizing recycled materials where possible and features the use of recycled water and rainwater, natural daylight, and 100 percent natural air on all floors, among other power-saving features.
