ArcelorMittal steel in new infrastructure for Brazil

ArcelorMittal is providing the foundations for new infrastructure in Brazil – from bridges, to housing developments in Santa Catarina and São Paulo. 

Recent infrastructure projects featuring ArcelorMittal steel include the Açu Bridge in São João da Barra – in the state of Rio de Janeiro – and new residential developments across the country.

Cinara Wastowski, regional sales manager for construction, ArcelorMittal Brazil, said: “Our focus, and what distinguishes us from the competition in Brazil, is our ability to deliver complete structural solutions that eliminate those phases that don’t bring any value to our customer’s final product. 

“As a result, ArcelorMittal construction solutions are safer, more cost-effective, and avoid material wastage – while allowing projects to be completed in shorter timeframes”.

Improving traffic flow in São João da Barra

ArcelorMittal has supplied 2,000 tonnes of steel – including rebar, cordage and steel pipe – for the Açu Bridge, which aims to improve downtown traffic flow in the city of Campos.

The 1,340m-long bridge will connect Açu Port to Highway 101 in São João da Barra, and is expected to be concluded in July this year.

Luxury living in Balneário Camboriú

ArcelorMittal will supply 750 tonnes of steel, including reinforced pile foundations, for the Phoenix Tower – a residential building in Balneário Camboriú. 

The building will feature two apartments on each floor, as well as a large recreation area, a massage room and a cinema. 

The work will last three years and the first apartments are to be delivered in March 2020. 

New living space in Ribeirão Preto

A total of 1,000 tonnes of ArcelorMittal steel, including CA-50 and CA-60 rebars, will be used in the construction of the residential “Vila do Parque”– a series of residential tower units in Ribeirão Preto. 

Located in one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the housing complex is being built by Construtora Habiarte Barc and will be completed in December, 2017.
