On May 15th, 2023, the Boldt Construction company and Riv/Crete Ready Mix partnered to make a “wish” come true for Cassandra an 8-year-old girl from Waukesha, WI.  Cassandra has a medical condition called Lennox-Gastaut that causes her to rely on braces to help her walk or use a wheelchair.  The family’s backyard was not accessible for Cassandra to get outside and enjoy family time safely.

Her “wish” was to have a safe environment where she and her family could enjoy roasting marshmallows, one of her favorite past times.  To accomplish this “wish” a new concrete area needed to be built along with a firepit.  The area was carefully designed to allow Cassandra easy access to the space while also providing a beautiful environment for her family.  The design team selected the Castle Stone stamp pattern with Cool Gray integral color which was accented by a dark gray release agent.

Cassandra, who also requires sensory input, had a special swing installed near the patio area that she can use while spending time with her family.  Cassandra and her family were extremely grateful for this “wish” to be granted.  Riv/Crete was honored to play a small role in providing some help for this wonderful family.

“The credit is due to the Riv-Crete team for supplying in spec material on a timely basis all night even as ice rates were modified throughout the pour to keep temps where they needed to be. WisDOT IA rep who was on site commented that he had seen less than a dozen deck pours of that size have in spec material the entire pour.”
