There was a time not long ago when large construction projects, or Mega Projects in this case, dotted skylines and the landscape around the globe. Times have changed and so has the construction industry, however, some Mega Projects are still moving forward even in this recessionary world.

Of course, the overall number of Mega Projects has dwindled, but many of these projects are constructed out of necessity, as opposed to opulence. Naturally, concrete plays a major role in these projects.

Concrete Construction will profile a few projects currently under construction in North America, as well a proposed project in the hopper that may head for construction soon.

1. WOLF CREEK DAM SEEPAGE REHABILITATION PROJECT

2. PERVIOUS CONCRETE

3. HURRICANE AND STORM DAMAGE RISK REDUCTION SYSTEM
