Portside: 2012

Portside is the largest Alkali-activated concrete structure in the world.

  • The first building in South Africa using up to 85% cement replacement with slag.
  • The pumping was conducted in single-stage pumping up to 156m high from the batch-plant across the road, the concrete pipeline was constructed under the road.
  • Significant savings in cost while achieving very high durability coefficients for chloride and oxygen permeability indexes.
