Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida constructed an 80,000 sq. ft. facility that will support advanced research in aero-propulsion, mechatronics (robotics) and sustainable energy engineering.

The structural engineer preferred to use fiber reinforcement and specified macro synthetic fibers to be used in the slab on grade, composite metal decks and topping slabs over hollowcore.

The contractor had never used macrosynthetic fibers before but was pleased with the ease of use of concrete containing Fibermesh® 650 and the resulting quality of the slabs.

Robert Myers, Concrete Superintendent for Culpepper Construction reported less cracking and tighter cracks in the metal deck and topping slabs than what he typically sees using wire mesh. The interior slabs received various surfaces which included a rubberized surface, tile and carpeting.
