Self-Consolidating Concrete Presentation & Forum
• SCC Project Forum: "How Contractors Build with SCC"
The editors of CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION will host The SCC Project Forum – How Contractors Build with SCC at the 2014 World of Concrete at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Monday, January 20, 2014 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
The Forum will provide a peer to peer environment during which contractors will share experiences on using SCC. Presentation will include projects from around the country.
Our editors will work with the Strategic Development Council’s organizing group to develop a 3 hour agenda of eight presentations. This invited group of industry experts will provide examples of how contractors have used SCC to increase job site productivity, enhance concrete quality, and meet or exceed job profits.
