Description

Lightweight Concrete refers to concrete with a density of 90-115 lb/ft³ compared to normal weight concrete of 140 - 150 lb/ft³.

High Performance Concrete (HPC) refers to concrete with a specified compression strength of 6, 000 psi (40 MPa) and greater.

Flowable Fill is a high slump, low strength concrete used primarily to replace compacted granular material.

Self Consolidating Concrete is a highly workable concrete mixture that can be placed in restricted structural elements by means of its own weight with no vibration.

Architectural Concrete refers to the combination of decorative or aesthetic applications with structural fabrication.

Post-tensioning applications combine the high compressive characteristics of concrete with the tensile strength of steel to increase overall strength and durability.
Prairie can mix concrete with many different characteristics to provide specific service and finished qualities to match the specified application.

Company description
Decorative concrete offers a wide range of colors, patterns and textures to create stunning effects for almost any concrete application -- from walkways, patios and driveways to streetscapes and interior floors, walls and countertops.


Prairie’s wide color palette gives designers and builders the ability to create lush decorative finishes with all the durability, economy and practicality of concrete. Our integrally colored mixes are expertly monitored to ensure smooth, consistent tones throughout every load.

In exterior landscapes, decorative mixes can be textured, stamped or rolled to imitate brick, slate or granite, complete with subtle color shifts, surface textures, and real grout placed in the formed joints.


Indoors, decorative concrete floors can be placed virtually anywhere -- from residential homes and high-rise condos to restaurants, lobby floors and retail spaces. Kitchens and baths can be enhanced with colorful accents for counters, integral sinks and backsplashes. The many stains, patterns and finishes that can be applied to existing or new concrete surfaces offer limitless design possibilities.
Concrete is one of the most versatile, durable, efficient, cost effective construction materials available. With a world wide production rate of 5 billion cubic tons per year, it is the second most consumed substance on earth after water. The U.S. alone uses about 340 million cubic yards (260 million cubic meters) of ready-mixed concrete each year. It is used in highways, streets, parking lots, parking garages, bridges, high-rise buildings, dams, homes, floors, sidewalks, driveways, and numerous other applications.

Concrete has no intrinsic form and its ultimate shape and texture is dictated by the formwork into which it is poured. As a result, finished concrete can assume almost any color, shape or texture. This versatility gives concrete designers and contractors a medium with unlimited potential.
