PACA and NRMCA Partner to Deliver Concrete Buildings Workshop

Article provided by Ken Crank, PACA's Director of Concrete Promotion

PACA and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) recently partnered to bring a workshop entitled Concrete Value and Innovations to Cranberry, PA. The event featured NRMCA Vice-President of Sustainability, Tien Peng and Senior Director of Building Innovations, Michael Wymant.

The content of the 6-hour program included information on today’s buildings market and focused particularly on ICF and Tilt-up concrete construction as they may be applied to the low to mid-rise (LMR) buildings market. This area of construction has seen wood take an alarming share of the market, and programs such as this one have been developed to help industry educate and bring awareness to both the developer and the specifier.

A total of 22 industry professional attended the event. PACA staff member. Ken Crank, is working to bring a similar event to eastern PA (greater Philadelphia metro) later this spring.
