Adopting Disaster Resilient Construction at the Local Level

 

Since 1930, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) has provided ready mixed concrete producers and the construction industry with accurate information and cutting-edge research and development support for the realization of concrete’s ever-advancing capabilities. In 2003, NRMCA created the Concrete Resource Team to directly support users of concrete by helping to implement a variety of innovative, sustainable solutions, including the utilization of concrete to gain LEED certification and assistance in developing pervious concrete stormwater mitigation systems.

This “live” Webinar series extends this support through a convenient and effective online format. Presenters are Concrete Resource Team members, each with a very strong knowledge of concrete and an average of more than 20 years of construction industry experience. They also have direct access to an extensive network of technical experts that can be tapped to answer questions that might arise during Webinars or follow-up discussions.

All NRMCA Webinars are registered with AIA and earn Professional Development Hours for participants.

 


ACI 330 R-08 – The Gold Standard of Concrete Parking Lot Design

(click on date for online registration)

Presented LIVE by Amy Miller, P.E.  ( EMAIL | BIO )

One-hour duration

$85 for each registrant.

Single copies of both ACI 330 R-08 (Guide for Design and Construction of Concrete Parking Lots) and ACI 330.1-03 (Specification for Un-Reinforced Concrete Parking Lots) will be provided free of charge with each paid Webinar.

For more information or for registration assistance, please contact Jessica Walgenbach at 240-485-1152.

Webinar Description:

When designing, constructing or proposing a concrete parking lot, there is just one standard that should be followed: ACI 330R-08 – Guide for the Design and Construction of Concrete Parking Lots. The webinar discusses the basis of the design guide, gives an overview of the sections of the guide and most importantly compares and reviews other commonly used design procedures to that of ACI 330 R-08. Upon participating, an attendee should feel confident that the best option for designing, constructing and testing of a concrete parking lot is encompassed within ACI 330R-08. Architects and engineers earn one Professional Development Hour upon completion of this program. This seminar is registered with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems.

The Quantifiable Advantages of Concrete Parking Lots

(click on date for online registration)

 

Presented LIVE by Phil Kresge ( EMAIL | BIO )

1-hour duration

$65 for each registrant.

For more information or for registration assistance, please contact Jessica Walgenbach at 240-485-1152.

Webinar Description:

This program provides an introduction to concrete parking lots and is targeted toward owners, designers, specifiers, and other decision-makers. Attendees will learn the benefits of using concrete for parking lots, including design, low maintenance, and safety. Additionally, the economical and environmental advantages of concrete parking lots and their role in sustainable development will be discussed. The program also includes a comparison of concrete and asphalt and introduces the Concrete Pavement Analyst design and cost comparative program. Attendees will also learn about other concrete alternatives such as concrete overlays and pervious concrete.

Architects and engineers earn one Professional Development Hour upon completion of this program. This seminar is registered with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems.

Designing and Specifying Pervious Concrete Parts I & II

(click on date for online registration)

Part 1: September 9, 2014 – 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET
Part 2: September 16, 2014 – 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

 

Presented LIVE by Phil Kresge ( EMAIL | BIO )

Two 1-hour sessions

$99 for each registrant.

Webinar Description:

This two-part Webinar provides an overview on implementing pervious concrete pavements as a solution to reducing stormwater runoff from building sites and other paved areas. Participants will learn about pervious concrete pavement systems, engineering properties and construction techniques. Part 1 discusses hydrologic and structural design of pervious concrete pavements. Part 2 addresses the specifics that every specifier should consider when drafting pervious concrete specifications, with a focus on American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee 522 Guide to Specification for Pervious Concrete. This Webinar will help civil engineers, architects, landscape architects and public works officials understand the principles behind pervious concrete design. Contractors, product suppliers and land developers will also benefit from this Webinar.

Architects and engineers earn Two Professional Development Hours upon completion of this program. This seminar is registered with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System.

Roller Compacted Concrete: Another Choice for Pavement

 

This webinar will introduce specifiers to Roller Compacted Concrete. Having characteristics of both asphalt and concrete pavements, RCC is best described as a third pavement choice. Attendees will learn the basics of RCC design and construction. Additionally, they will better understand the benefits of RCC, in terms of both construction and performance. Frequently asked questions regarding reinforcement, maintenance and freeze-thaw durability will also be addressed.
