All County Mobile Concrete is supplying 3- to 6-yd. loads on tight schedules for new visitorsÌ center areas at the 12-acre Liberty Island in New York Harbor. The Yonkers, N.Y., supplier has dispatched one of its three Zim-Mixer volumetric trucks for a series of 6:30Ò9:45 a.m. pours, allowing New York City general contractor F.J. Sciame Construction to conclude work prior to island visitorsÌ 10 a.m. arrivals. The schedule has required All County Mobile to have trucks ready for a 6 a.m. barge boarding at a dock in Jersey City, N.J., about 25 miles from its yard. Work on footings and slabs began in mid-winter and continues this spring. Winter pours required All County to load aggregate, admixtures and water just prior to dispatch; only a blended cement (following item) could be pre-loaded.
