Concrete Considerations for Proton Therapy Construction ...

May 14, 2019  Inside the mass of concrete, some of it up to 14 feet thick, is about 1.25 miles of conduit, 100 tons of rebar and more than 100 mounting plates, supports and boxes that must be exactly placed and embedded. Combined, almost 50% of the construction cost of a proton therapy project is reflected in the cost of concrete and everything inside it.
