Throop Company was contacted to produce parking lot islands and sidewalks in a concrete lighter in color than normal concrete for the Los Angeles Public Library LEEDS Project.

Several pours were involved and all the concrete was pumped. We finished on-time and within budget. Read more about the L.A. Public Library LEED project
