NRMCA Improving Concrete Quality Course - Denver, CO

NRMCA Improving Concrete Quality Course - Denver, CO
Improved concrete quality has far reaching benefits—in improved performance, reduced time and costs, a lower environmental footprint of concrete and an overall improvement in the quality of concrete construction. However, it is hard to find a course focused on the subject of improving concrete quality. Based on quality surveys and award submissions, it has been observed that the industry does not commonly track quantifiable quality indicators and, as a result, the return on quality investments is not well understood. Improving Concrete Quality, a book authored by one of the instructors, addresses these issues. That book, as well as other NRMCA resources provides the basic content for the course.
