Hubbard’s Corner – Living Laboratory for De-Risking Material Innovation

An adaptive reuse project in Seattle, Hubbard’s Corner, has five industry-first ASTM C1157 zero portland cement concrete pilot pours, four of them being 10cy or more each. The building is now open with the Atlantic Crossing soccer pub on the first floor. This presentation will explore the inspiration behind this lower-carbon concrete initiative and share findings from the placements, testing, and final in-place concrete.

WA ACI Chapter Meeting ~ Climate, Carbon and Concrete presentation on Portland-Limestone Cements ~ Wednesday, June 2, 2021  

View Jamie Farny's presentation on portland-limestone cement HERE

A Climate, Carbon, and Concrete presentation on Portland-Limestone Cements. This presentation explains what portland-limestone cements (PLC) are and how can they help lead to more sustainable construction. Going beyond PLC's history and uses to new innovations and performance. A significant aspect of PLC is that it lowers concrete carbon emissions by about 10% over more traditional portland cement. 

Presented by Jamie Farny of the Portland Cement Association. As director, building marketing for the Portland Cement Association, Jamie Farny promotes the use of cement-based materials for various applications by focusing on sustainability, resilience, energy efficiency, durability, and other key benefits. He assisted with the development of PCA’s new campaign to raise awareness of portland-limestone cements (PLCs) for improved sustainability of concrete construction. He is a member of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society for Testing and Materials, and The Masonry Society. He holds a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology.

WA ACI Chapter Meeting: Ship Canal Water Quality Project ~ Thursday, March 18, 2021

Thank you to  Ms. Eleanor A. Jackson, P.E. Ship Canal Water Quality Project Design Manager, Seattle Public Utilities for her very informative presentation on this enormous project SPU and King County have partnered on. 

Her presentation is available to view HERE.


Seattle Public Utilities and King County Wastewater Treatment Division in partnership are jointly building an underground storage tunnel. The Ship Canal Water Quality Project includes a 2.7-mile, 18-ft, and 10-in internal-diameter tunnel that will extend from Ballard to Wallingford.  Along the tunnel path, five vertical shafts will be built (in Ballard, East Ballard, Fremont, Queen Anne, and Wallingford) to convey flows from existing neighborhood systems to the storage tunnel. Construction began in 2018 and will continue through 2025.
