Speakers and Topics
Constructability Best Practices for RC
Presented by: Mike Lenkin, PE, Lenkin
Presentation will address actual case studies to discuss
constructability best practices.
Detailing Best Practices
Presented by: Nucor/Harris-TBD
Most detailing issues are captured through RFI’s; however, many issues
could be addressed during the design phase. This presentation focuses on
detailing best practices to address commonly encountered issues during
preparation of placement drawings.
9:30-9:45 Coffee Break
Economical Design of Insulating Concrete Forms
Presented by: Lionel Lemay, PE, SE, LEED AP
EVP, National Ready Mixed Concrete Association
Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) combine the strength and durability of
reinforced concrete with the energy efficiency of rigid insulation,
providing an ideal solution for multi-family, commercial and
institutional applications. The presentation will discuss preliminary
wall sizing and placement along with structural design considerations
including design details and construction inspections.
Emerging Trends with Concrete Mix-Design
Presented by: William Lyons, The Euclid Chemical Co.
While the design and construction community have been tasked to create
structures to be taller, have increased durability, less cracking /
extended joint spacing and have corrosion protection, admixtures in
concrete are doing their part to achieve these goals. This presentation
will be a general synopsis on how specialty admixtures including macro
synthetic fibers have contributed value to the construction industry.
High-Strength Steel Reinforcement and the new
Presented by: Mike Mota, Ph.D, P.E., F.ASCE, F.ACI, F.SEI, CRSI
Presentation will address the changes in ACI 318-19 with respect to high
strength steel reinforcement.
