Topics:


QUALITY CONTROL/ QUALITY ACCEPTANCE (QC/QA) SPECIFICATIONS FOR CONCRETE FLATWORK & PAVEMENTS
Over the last couple of decades, QC/QA specifications have been more readily adopted by owners for transportation related projects. The focus of this presentation will define the different types of specifications used by owners, reasons for using QC/QA specifications, pertinent points regarding QC/QA specifications, advantages of QC/QA specifications, and some statistical background to help understand how risk is better balanced between owners and contracting partners when using QC/QA specifications.

CONCRETE OVERLAYS FOR STREET, LOCAL ROADS AND PARKING LOTS
Rehabilitating an existing paving with a concrete overlay represents one of the largest growth opportunities for the ready mixed concrete industry. Whether the existing paving is currently concrete or asphalt, a street and local roads (SLR) or parking lot project, the time proven practices for a successful concrete overlay project is covered in this session. Attendees will learn where to get the most current information and see examples of successful projects, along with construction best practices referencing industry standard and accepted guide manuals. This session is a must for anyone getting started in concrete overlays of existing pavement, or as a refresher course for those already engaged in the application.

 

MAKING THE CASE FOR CONCRETE BUILDINGS (BWS)
Build with Strength is educating the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete, and encouraging its use as the building material of choice for low-to mid-rise structures. Join us to learn more about these efforts, and obtain the tools necessary to stand up for stronger and more resilient buildings in your own community. (Pending AIA approval -1 hr credit)

LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES
Concrete offers many environmental attributes that help reduce the overall life cycle impacts of a building. This course explores how life cycle assessment can be used to measure and lower the environmental impacts of buildings. (Pending AIA approval -1 hr credit)

 

RECENT CHANGES TO INDUSTRY STANDARDS IMPACTING THE INDUSTRY ACI 318, ACI 332, ACI 301, ASTM C94
NRMCA Engineering Division will provide an update on developments and some initiatives in the standards area that can benefit the ready mixed concrete industry. Updates will cover standards within ACI, ASTM and AASHTO that impact private and public construction.

 

CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION OF CONCRETE FLATWORK AND PAVEMENT: AVOIDING PITFALLS AND WORKING WITH OWNER AGENCIES/DEVELOPERS TO RESOLVE ISSUES
Construction inspection by owner agencies potentially reduces their risk of accepting uncompliant construction but can also lead to adversarial relationships on a project. This presentation will answer why you should care about inspection as well as discuss the importance of quality from the perspective of the contracting partners, explain what to do when things go wrong, and highlight the benefits of clearly communicating with owners/developers and how contracting risk and conflict can be minimized.
