Concrete In Practice (CIP)

Concrete in Practice Graphic

CIP is Promotion through education.

Concrete In Practice is a series of one-page information sheets on important technical topics, written in a non-technical “What, Why and How?” format. Give them to contractors and they’ll know that you deliver quality and value and make them a part of your promotion and education program.
