Aquarium Pour in Miami

World’s most unusual concrete pours, the creation of a martini glass-shaped 500,000-gallon seawater aquarium tank, a non-stop 25-hour, 1,200-cubic-yard placement, in Miami, Skanska.   Watch the time lapse…

“The stakes were very high for this aspect of our new $101 million Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science project: The tank can’t have any cracks large enough to let water pass through, which essentially means no cracks at all, and certainly not any construction joints.”
