Holcim supplies Mexico City airport
01 August 2017

Holcim Mexico begun the operation of an on-site production facility to supply premixed concrete for the foundation of the passenger terminal of Mexico City’s new international airport (NAICM), Manuel Sirtori, Corporate Director of Premixed Concrete, Sales, Logistics and Distribution for the company has said.
“Holcim Mexico is proud to participate in the construction of the country’s most extensive infrastructure project of the century. To contribute in the building of the new airport is a great distinction for us and a showing of trust and support on the part of ICA e IDINSA, our strategic partners in the development of this phenomenal job”, said Manuel Sirtori.
The on-site installations have the capacity to deliver, under the safest working conditions, sufficient daily premixed concrete to build a concrete slab with an area of 310,000m2 and a depth of 1.5m.
The land where the NAICM is being built presents a substantial technical challenge, which demands adherence to strict durability specifications offered by highly-specialized concrete solutions.
The design and supply of the concrete to be used in this project will contribute to achieving the LEED Platinum certification for the NAICM, which is the highest sustainability grade possible for buildings. The endorsement includes design, construction and operation phases.
The NAICM is a unique project in America, with a long-term social vision that is 100 per cent sustainable. It will be one of the world’s largest airports.
