DESCRIPTION

More than 1500 cast units have been delivered and installed, for more than 38,000 cubic meters of concrete and 1000 kilometers of post-tension cable.

A project of such a scale required a thorough rethinking, the methods of delivery and installation had to be extended, roads and bridges had to be temporarily reinforced to allow the passage of large prefabricated elements and equipment.

The limits of the concrete were pushed back with the use of superplasticizers for the first time in North America.
