Month List

The new Hilton Hotel located in downtown Cleveland opened at the beginning of this month, two years and two months after the groundbreaking. Donley's is proud to have provided concrete services on this amazing new hotel on the historic downtown Cleveland Mall.  Our team along with Cuyahoga County, Hilton Hotels, Turner Construction, Cooper Cary, VOA Associates and Van Aukin Akins Architects are extremely proud of the work done for the hotel.

“More than 2,100 workers, cranking at almost record speed to be ready in time for the Republican National Convention,” reports (view full article along with more pictures here).  The hotel along with many other Cleveland projects such as Public Square are all helping to revitalize downtown! 

Donley's Concrete recently placed enough concrete to cover 6.5 football fields with a thickness of 4” at the Health Education Campus (HEC).  The new 485,000 sq. ft. HEC is a collaboration between the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University to create a campus that will reimagine the preparation of healthcare leaders for the 21st century. This volume of concrete could pour a 5’0” wide sidewalk that is 61,236 ft. long, or 11.60 miles.  Here are some other facts about the recent concrete placement.

Area/Size – 30” thick, 34,868 sq. ft.
Cubic Yards of Concrete – 3,713 cubic yds.
370 (10) yard concrete trucks of concrete
42 ready-mix truck drivers servicing from 3 separate batch plants
Roughly 9 hours of placement at +/- 420 cubic yards per hour utilizing 3 concrete pumps
350 tons of reinforcing steel

Donley's is also providing Construction Management services on the HEC project.  We are delighted to be working with Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University, and our joint venture partner, Turner Construction Company, on this transformative campus.
