Heavy concrete vs standard concrete

3 June 2020
Standard concrete continues to be the most utilised concrete, even when dense concrete might be considered a better, more cost-effective and time-reducing alternative. Why is this?

Counterweight for bascule bridge

9 January 2020
More weight, less volume seems the most obvious reason to use MagnaDense concrete for a counterweight in a bridge because dimensions are often limited.
