Mayor Robert Donchez, Senator Lisa Boscola and other dignitaries gather Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 for the dedication of a 626-spot garage in south Bethlehem. The garage at New and Third streets has been billed as jumpstarting redevelopment in that section of the South Side Business District. The $17.4 million is connected to a six-story office building under construction next to it. That office building will be home to offices for St. Luke’s University Health Network and Lehigh University. There will also be first-floor commercial space. Motorists can sign up for monthly parking passes for the garage. It costs $65 a spot. The parking authority leases 180 spots to the developer for his tenants.

Water-Reducing BASF AdmixturesWe offer High Range Water Reducing Concrete admixtures based on synthetic polymers for production of rheoplastic concrete such as that used for Binghamton-University. Rheoplastic Concrete flows easily, maintaining high degree of plasticity for time periods longer than conventional superplasticized concrete. Rheoplastic concrete has the low water-cementitious materials ratio of no-slump concrete, providing excellent engineering (hardened) properties.Go> Back<
How Does a Water-Reducing BASF Admixture Work?
In rheoplastic concrete, BASF admixtures maximize the dispersion of the cement, enabling the production of concrete with an extremely low water-to-cement ratio. The end result is significant water reduction. In addition, these BASF admixtures inject rheoplastic properties into the concrete that enhances the placement of fresh concrete, resulting in greater efficiency in the production process. This technology is ideally suited for the manufacturing of concrete mixes requiring early strength and higher levels of fluidity.
What Are the Benefits of Rheoplastic BASF Admixtures?
These revolutionary BASF admixtures can provide the advantage of decreased placement times. This results in a reduction in labor requirements, which can help lower overall project costs. The lower permeability will improve the strength of the finished concrete product, while also increasing its durability. Additionally, the lower permeability will reduce chloride ingress and water reduction. You will also experience fewer segregation issues at all levels of workability.
