Committed to great service and delivering quality product, Scioto Ready Mix is the first in the Columbus, OH market to implement EPD NOW.

SCIOTO READY MIX LAUNCHES EPD-NOW TECHNOLOGY TO MEET THE GROWING DEMAND FOR REDUCED CARBON CONSTRUCTION

Scioto Ready Mix, today announced implementation of EPD-Now, a technology from Sika Corporation, enabling Scioto to analyze, design, and verify the carbon footprint of concrete, while also meeting stringent demands for strength, workability, and durability. EPD-Now enables Scioto to enter a mix design into a web browser and instantly generate a verified, mix specific Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s).

Up to now ready mix producers had to call on a consultant to create an EPD, a costly and time consuming process taking from 30-90 days, making it nearly impossible for ready mix producers to effectively respond to bids requiring EPD’s.

With this announcement, Scioto will be the first in the Columbus, OH market to fill this data gap, at any time in the project cycle with immediate precise environmental and performance metrics for the most complex projects and for any and all concrete mixes. With Scioto’s shift to digital data, architects can build with confidence and rely on the strength and sustainability of ready mix for the most demanding projects requiring EPD’s.

"EPD-Now was implemented in record time, clearly reflecting the company’s deep expertise and knowledge of the ready mix industry,” said Laurel McEwen VP of EPD Services for Climate Earth.

“EPD- Now is a great tool for the ready mix producer. It has made the process of generating EPD’s fast and efficient. This allows us to quickly respond to EPD requests from our clients and is more cost effective than the traditional method. It allows us to look at the environmental impact of a mix design quickly and adjust to project requirements if needed. The team at Climate Earth was a pleasure to work with and I would like to thank Laurel McEwen for her help and guidance with the entire process,” said Scott Workman, Quality Control Manager at Scioto Ready Mix.

As part of the on-going program to provide world class technical support, Sika Corporation developed EPD-Now (www2.na-sika.com/sikaepdnow) in partnership with Climate Earth, Inc. to ensure Sika Corporation ready mix clients have access to the latest technology to serve the growing market for low carbon construction.
