NRMCA Webinar: The Seven Things You Can Do To Place More Concrete in Buildings
Are you tired of watching wood buildings going up and wondering why they are not concrete? Are you wondering you can change this alarming trend? Come learn about the seven things you can do to help win back share of concrete in buildings from wood and steel. In September 2015, the NRMCA Board of Directors adopted a comprehensive building promotion plan to stem and regain concrete’s loss of market share in the low/mid-rise buildings market. There are three main strategies. The key strategy is direct project promotion where NRMCA, members and industry partners work directly with developers to provide technical support and design assistance with the primary objective of converting wood and steel designs to concrete. Two other strategies provide support including communications and advocacy. This webinar will layout the seven basic steps towards gaining back that lost share and increase the amount of concrete placed in buildings.
