The concrete footings for the new brick front and rear walls were poured today. Even Elemental Building’s Chief Operating Officer got in the mix! Of course, the mix included flyash/slag replacement (see info on the ‘Greenest Garage in Chicago’ page for more information on the benefits of flyash concrete). Unfortunately, though we ordered 50% flyash, we only got 35%. Why? Because most builders (even when they are trying to be green) order 35%, so our 50% order got lost in the shuffle. Just goes to show you how much diligence it takes to overcome the status quo.
