Roger & Sons Concrete recently completed the 250,000-square-foot, four-level substructure and the 2.3-million-square-foot, 64-story concrete superstructure for World Trade Center Tower 4. With 115,000 cubic yards of concrete and 18,000 tons of reinforcing steel, it earned Roger & Sons a Concrete Industry Board 2013 Award of Merit (for a review, see Concrete Construction’s August 2011 issue). The contractor is now working on 432 Park Avenue, a tower featuring an architectural white concrete exterior, said to be the tallest residential concrete structure in the Western Hemisphere.
With an emphasis on integrity of relationships, Rogers & Sons maintains a narrowly focused client list and a strategic short list of vendors. About 90% of its work is for repeat customers. To maintain healthy margins in the economic downturn Rogers & Sons, honed its risk management practices to secure more complex projects.
They have developed a proprietary concrete wash-out procedure to stop wash-out from entering drainage systems and recycles almost all construction waste.
