Groupe Deric has won in 2015, from the Institut d’Acier armature du Québec (Quebec Steel Reinforcement Institute) the industrial award for its works on the construction of two silos of a capacity 37,500 metric tons each, for wood pellet storage in the Port of Quebec. This new concrete installation technic, a first in Canada, uses an inflated Kevlar envelop as the formwork. The Kevlar envelop is maintained under positive pressure until all steel reinforcement and projected concrete works are completed. Groupe Deric is the Canadian distributor of this new technic thru its domexpert Company.
