Concrete Done Right

Cypress Civil & Development takes pride in providing our clients with an array of different applications and designs including foundations, paving, and other concrete needs. There is not a job too big or too small, commercial or residential, that our team can’t handle. 

Concrete is a fundamental building material.

Here are some of the key benefits of using concrete in construction projects:

  • Strength and Durability: Concrete is renowned for its high compressive strength, making it ideal for constructing buildings, bridges, and other structures that require a strong, long-lasting material. It can withstand harsh weather conditions, resist wear and tear, and has a long service life with minimal maintenance.

  • Versatility: Concrete can be cast into almost any shape or form, allowing architects and engineers to design structures with unique shapes and complex geometries. It can be used in various applications, from simple pathways to massive infrastructure projects like dams and highways.

  • Thermal Mass: Concrete has high thermal mass, meaning it can absorb and retain heat, helping to regulate the temperature inside buildings. This property can contribute to energy efficiency by reducing the need for heating and cooling.

  • Fire Resistance: Concrete is naturally fire-resistant, providing an excellent level of fire protection for buildings and reducing the risk of fire spreading.

  • Cost-Effective: Although the initial cost of concrete construction can be high, its longevity and low maintenance requirements make it a cost-effective choice over the long term. Concrete structures often have lower lifecycle costs compared to those built with other materials.

  • Environmental Sustainability: Concrete can be made with locally available materials, reducing transportation emissions. Additionally, it can incorporate recycled materials like fly ash, slag cement, and recycled aggregate, enhancing its environmental sustainability. Concrete’s durability also means less frequent replacement and repair, contributing to reduced resource consumption and waste.

  • Sound Insulation: Due to its density, concrete provides excellent sound insulation, reducing noise pollution and enhancing the acoustic performance of buildings.

  • Water Resistance: Concrete possesses good resistance to water and flooding, making it suitable for underwater and subterranean applications, including foundations, basements, and sewer systems.

My experience with Cypress Civil & Development and Trace Ledet has exceeded expectations. From preconstruction design to final dress of a commercial construction project, Cypress Civil provided communication and follow through, from start to finish. There has been several projects that Trace took the time to evaluate geo-tech reports and propose economical solutions prior to breaking ground. Overall, I highly recommend Cypress Civil & Development and Trace for any civil construction estimates, budgets, or future projects.

Rick Warren Co-Owner, Triad Construction Services

Triad Construction has worked directly with Trace on several commercial new construction projects. He is very knowledgeable in his field. Whenever unforeseen conditions have arisen, as can happen with the various soil conditions in our area, Trace has been pro-active in finding the most cost-effective solutions. Due to his fair pricing and experience in the field, we would strongly recommend using Cypress Civil & Development for your site work and drainage needs.
