Mutual Materials Buffs Up 'Building Blocks'

This article describes on how Mutual Materials utilizes concrete in an effective and unique way. With 10 plants throughout the Northwest, the newest recently opened in Lacey, Mutual Materials creates not only bricks but also concrete modular units (CMUs) and pavers for all types of construction. The results are anything but drab. Unlike concrete poured into place on-site, Mutual Materials makes products with machines which pour, cure and strengthen the modular units. Large concrete blocks can be used in vertical applications, while pavers can be used in streets and pathways.
