Cemex USA is supplying nearly 300,000 tons of aggregate for the new Carrie Meek Warehouse/Nebula complex near Miami as part of the company’s supporting growth in South Florida.

Using aggregate from Cemex’s FEC Quarry, the company is supplying 80,000 tons of limerock base, 50,000 tons of fill screenings, and 50,000 tons of ASTM 57 and ASTM 4 rock for the project, which is located in Opa-Locka, Florida.

The nearly 900,000-sq.-ft. complex is expected to open by the end of this year.

“Cemex’s extensive network in Florida with 13 quarries, two cement plants and more than 80 ready-mix facilities can provide all the resources to satisfy the specific needs of our customers,” says Kirk Light, regional president of the Florida region for Cemex USA. “Cemex has decades of experience in Florida, contributing to skyscrapers, highways, even theme parks. FEC quarry is uniquely capable of handling large jobs like the Carrie Meek complex not only in the Miami area, but also across the state.”

Cemex’s FEC Quarry, established in 1974, is Cemex’s second-largest aggregate-producing operation in the United States, and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) ranked it as one of the largest producers of crushed stone in the nation.

In addition to Cemex’s FEC Quarry, the company’s Balcones Quarry in New Braunfels, Texas, was also ranked first in the nation in terms of crushed stone production, according to USGS. The Balcones Quarry annually processes more than 10 million tons of limestone to provide construction projects for projects across Texas, according to Cemex.
