Royal Bank of Scotland Makes it Happen With Concrete
The British-owned Royal Bank of Scotland is currently building the largest trading floor space in the world in Stamford, Conn. The new $400 million, 12-story, 500,000-square-foot office complex is located in downtown Stamford near Interstate 95.
The office and parking garage complex, designed by Thorton-Tomasetti of New York City, features a combination of post-tensioned concrete parking garages as well as conventional concrete construction. According to general contractor Turner Construction, concrete was selected because of its availability and speed of construction. The project will consume an estimated 10,000 tons of cement.
PCA regional engineering manager Mike Mota has long worked with the Connecticut Concrete Promotion Council to promote the use of concrete for buildings through seminars and workshops.
