Reducing emissions through the use of SCM

Our team on the Webb Street Level Crossing Removal Project in Melbourne has taken a proactive approach to address greenhouse gas emissions by incorporating 80% Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCM) in their concrete slab, the highest SCM content in Victoria!

Portland Cement is a binding agent used in concrete, and traditional cement production is a significant contributor to global carbon emission. Using SCM in place of cement further reduces the amount of carbon emissions.

Described as strong and, fit for purpose, the 80% SCM concrete mix can be used for non-structural applications like share user paths or footings. Amongst other locations the Webb Street project is using this mix in the slab that will be the waste enclosure.

We're leading the way with sustainability innovations - working with our suppliers, designers, and our construction teams to reduce carbon emissions!
