Sustainability Committee (including Building Codes)

Chairperson: Don Ingerson
Vice Chair: Lori Tiefenthaler
Executive Committee Liaison: Rodney Grogan

Staff Liaison:  Lionel Lemay, P.E., S.E., LEED AP, CAE


Scope and Objectives: The scope of the Committee is to coordinate technical aspects of NRMCA’s sustainability initiatives, including sustainability standards, building codes, sustainable product standards, and sustainable production practices relating to the ready mixed concrete industry. The following are the Committee’s main areas of emphasis:


  • Actively interface with other NRMCA committees, state affiliates, and national allies to assist in the technical aspects of sustainability and building codes with regards to education, promotion, concrete technology and advocacy.
  • Educate and influence code organizations, rating system developers, and other organizations that can impact the concrete construction industry.
  • Develop technical publications, programs, and training for members, designers, contractors and other stakeholders related to sustainability standards and building codes, sustainable production practices, and sustainable product attributes.
  • When strategically appropriate, support the adoption of sustainability standards and building codes that responsibly represent concrete’s advantages and oppose those that do not.
  • Proactively develop, influence and support amendments to local codes and standards where they are deficient. 
  • Actively develop programs to help ready mixed concrete producers fold sustainable thinking into every strategic decision.


NRMCA members interested in joining the NRMCA Sustainability Committee should contact Lionel Lemay at LLemay@nrmca.org or 847-918-7101.
