National Ready Mix sited the operation to ensure a typical delivery window in the 30-minute range for downtown Los Ange- les high-rise building orders. The producer opted for a dual-lane, transit mixed design of a level manufacturer and dealer, Concrete Equipment Co. and DHE Inc., rarely quote. Twin Con-E-Co batch plants combine for 1,100 tons of cementitious materials, split between two silos engineered with five compart- ments each; and, aggregate bins containing 375 tons of up to eight grades of material. Feeding the bins are three aggregate bunkers totaling at least 5,000 tons of live storage. Twin 1,500-ton bunkers holding sand and ¾-in. gravel flank two four-compartment, 1,000- ton bunkers dedicated to 1-in. and specialty aggregates.
