Concrete is all around you. Some of your neighbors probably have concrete driveways and most sidewalks are made of concrete. But, did you know there are many famous structures standing today that are made of concrete? Some of them are ancient, while others stand up to major stressors each day. Our team of Twin Cities concrete contractors would have loved to be a part of creating either of these structures. We take that same passion and apply it to our customers all around the Twin Cities. In this blog, we’re going to cover just a couple of the most notable famous concrete structures.
The Pantheon that stands today was built in Rome around 126 AD. It was created as a temple to all the gods of ancient Rome. Today, the oldest, unreinforced concrete dome sits atop this historic structure. Talk about durability! The concrete on the Pantheon has stood the test of time. In this day and age, modern concrete contractors have many more tools at their disposal to expertly install concrete fixtures. You shouldn’t settle for anything less than concrete for your new driveway, stairs or walkway.
Fast forward to 1936 when the Hoover Dam was completed. It was built on the boarder of Arizona and Nevada to provide power, flood control, water storage and more to the surrounding states. While you probably don’t have several gallons of water passing through your property every second, concrete is a practical building material. Think about it: if it can stand up to the stresses of the Hoover Dam, it will serve you well for many years.
