PROMOTIONS
When Chris Wood, an account manager of NRMCA Producer member Concrete Supply in Charlotte, NC, pursued a local owner regarding a small shopping center that would house a Starbucks Coffee outlet, he didn’t know this small project would actually turn out to be much larger and provide further additional yardage. The original plans of the shopping center were specified to be asphalt, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Amy Miller. Wood used NRMCA’s Design Assistance Program (DAP) to develop a relevant concrete specification that was delivered to the owner. The owner accepted the concrete bid and this job that was initially a building pad, dumpster pad and sidewalks added a parking lot and bulk head.

Along with receiving a superior pavement surface, the owner was able to save money by reducing lighting requirements due to the excellent reflectivity of concrete. The evidence of the owner’s delight is evident with the additional projects the owners have brought to Wood and Concrete Supply. "As an industry we should never overlook an opportunity, even one that initially looks small. This project turned out to be much larger than initially planned and gave us the opportunity through the use of the DAP to educate all involved and gain additional future yardage as well as more happy concrete owners," stated Wood.

A team consisting of Technical Services Manager Tom Leasure with NRMCA Producer member The Dolomite Group in Rochester, NY, and Doug O’Neill, senior director, national resources with NRMCA, recently presented to a regional design firm in the Western NY area on the concept of moving from prescriptive specifications to performance-based specifications. Leasure gave the group of civil engineers an overview of the New York Construction Materials Association's efforts through its Section 501 Committee to help rewrite the NYS DOT’s specifications allowing contractors to come in with their own designed mixes that will be pre-verified to meet certain performance requirements. The group understood the hard work the committee has been undertaking and appreciates how these changes with help make designers and contractors lives easier when dealing with DOT work.
 
O’Neill was given time to share with the group the advances of pervious concrete technology over the last few years in northern climates. Greg Novitzki with the New York Construction Materials Association provided photos of pervious projects that have been completed throughout the state; the group's questions were addressed pertaining to durability issues. New technologies, including RCC and SCC, were also discussed with some interest expressed for further information on both.

ASSOCIATION & INDUSTRY NEWS
The RMC Research & Education Foundation recently released two new reports: Design Methodology for Subgrades and Bases Under Concrete Roads and Parking Lots and Test Methods & Results of Erosion Potential of Commonly Used Subgrade and Base Materials. Developed at the Texas Transportation Institute, these reports are the culmination of research on best practices for identifying potential erosion problems before pavement is placed. The research and reports were reviewed by industry pavement professionals who offered their guidance and expertise to ensure a high-quality final product.

Copies of the reports are available for download from the Foundation’s homepage. Theyare also available as hard copies and on CD. For more information, please contact Jennifer LeFevre at jlefevre@rmc-foundation.org or at 240-485-1151.
 
ENGINEERING
The NRMCA Research Engineering and Standards (RES) Committee met at NRMCA ConcreteWorks in Indianapolis last week. The Committee discussed various developments in ASTM standards and changes to the approved ACI 318 building code and ACI 301 specification. The committee also reviewed a presentation on sulfate resistance of concrete performed through a pooled fund study at the NRMCA research laboratory. On the P2P Initiative, an analysis of more than 100 specifications was discussed – these were reviewed to quantify the level of prescription. The committee decided on some strategies to address these issues in the near future.

The committee discussed upcoming technical courses and certifications, plant certification and approved new topics for publication and revisions (CIPs and TIPs). It selected a recipient for the 2015 Richard D. Gaynor Award. The Excellence in Quality Award was presented to 31 divisions or companies of NRMCA members.

The technical track sessions included a session on the nuts and bolts of NRMCA’s programs on:
  • Developing Environmental Product Declarations, Health Product Declarations and Corporate Sustainable Reporting presented by Lionel Lemay and Tien Peng;
  • Development of a Responsible Sourcing Certification system was discussed by Stefan van Uffelen from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD);
  • Mike Schneider with Baker Concrete discussed a pre-construction checklist and more to highlight the issues that needed to be addressed between contractors and producers for a successful project;
  • Farro and Anousha Radjy and Colin Lobo discussed issues related to batching accuracy and the implications to concrete performance and cost; and
  • Jason Weiss with Purdue University presented on the value proposition to the concrete producer on the performance enhancements provided by the use of internal curing of concrete mixtures; he discussed the simple steps and tests that could be used for a producer to develop concrete mixtures with internal curing.
The technical track sessions were selected and facilitated by the RES Committee. 

For more information, contact Colin Lobo at clobo@nrmca.org or Karthik Obla at kobla@nrmca.org.
 
The NRMCA Concrete Durability Course was offered earlier in September at the Florida Concrete & Products Association in Orlando. There were 15 attendees at the course and they gave rave reviews on the program. The results of the Level 4 certification exam have been finalized and sent to the persons who attempted exams. Attendees are congratulated for attending and participating in the course. Eleven individuals were successful at passing the exam and 10 were awarded the NRMCA Concrete Technologist Level 4 certification. Dates and location for the next course are not set, but will likely be scheduled in May and September 2015. Location is yet to be determined.

OPERATIONS, ENVIRONMENTAL, SAFETY & HR
Concrete mixer truck driver Mike Valentine from Stanfield, NC, earned top honors at this year’s NRMCA National Mixer Driver Championship. The event was held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway® and the JW Marriott Indianapolis in conjunction with the 2014 NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks. Mr. Valentine of Concrete Supply Company, Charlotte, NC, also earned the champion’s check of $2,500. Mr. Valentine is a veteran driver of more than 19 years and currently drives a Mack Granite truck with a Continental rear discharge mixer. Mike was the winner of the 2014 Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s South Carolina Division Championship.

Now in its ninth year, this year’s national contest "was an extremely close competition," according to NRMCA Senior Vice President of Operations and Compliance Gary Mullings. Forty eight drivers, the largest number to compete, included state rodeo champions as well as NRMCA member company champions from around the nation. Competing to be the "Best of the Best", a champion was selected based on a cumulative score derived from competitions that included a driving challenge course, visual vehicle inspection, reaction-time-test, delivery ticket station and a 2-hour written examination. Awards were presented for the top three finishers. The Truck Mixer Manufacturers Bureau (TMMB) added additional money to recognize the fourth and fifth place winners as well, with all other drivers tied for sixth. (A video of this year's event has been placed on NRMCA's homepage.)

Second place and a check for $1,000 went to Steven Odehnal of Virginia Beach, VA. Mr. Odehnal is a veteran driver of more than 32 years and has been driving for Capital Concrete for the past three years. He currently drives a Mack truck with a rear discharge Continental mixer. Odehnal is the reigning 2014 Virginia Ready-Mixed Concrete Association Champion. Third place and a check for $500 went to Heath Burgos of Mathew, NC. He has also been driving for Concrete Supply in Charlotte, in his case for the last eight years, and is currently driving an International, five-axle truck with Continental rear discharge mixer. Mr. Burgos is an NRMCA Certified Delivery Professional and is the reigning 2014 Concrete Supply Company Rodeo Champion. 

For the first time in the event’s history, fourth and fifth place finishers were also recognized. The forth place finisher was Todd Brown, from Manatts Inc., Newton, IA. The fifth place finisher was Billy Byrd from Prairie Materials, Wanatah, IN. Each fourth and fifth place finisher received $250 from TMMB.

Also honored at the awards dinner were drivers who distinguished themselves at various stages of the competition. The top scorer of the "Closest to the Egg" station was Brian Kelly from Bard Materials, Strawberry Point, IA. Tied for the top score at the Delivery Ticket Station were Billy Byrd, Simon Martinez, Prairie Materials, Chicago; Jason Nelson, MMC Materials, Cleveland, MS; Todd Sechrist, Barney and Dickerson Ready Mix, Vestal, NY; and Tony Taylor, Irving Materials Inc., Indianapolis.

Drivers who made a basket at the "Chute Hoops" station were Mike Boyd, American Concrete, Ankeny, Iowa; Todd Brown, Billy Byrd, Chris Harrison, Mobley Construction, Russellville, AR; Tony Kluesner, Bard Materials, Dyersville, IA; Phillip Marlow, CalPortland, Clackamas, OR; Cliff Parchman, Argos, Fort Worth, TX; Todd Sechrist, Trent Slavens, Irving Materials Inc., Frankfort, IN; Matt Strickland, MMC Materials, Saltillo, MS; Tony Taylor, Sam Thomas, Delta Industries, Mobile, AL and Don Zavesky, GCC, DeSmet, SD.

The popular bowling station returned to the competition for the third year. The only driver to score a strike was Tony Kluesner. Drivers were also tested to determine who had the fastest reaction time through computerized testing. The title of "Fastest in the Nation" went to Heath Burgos. The highest score on the written exam and title "Smartest Boy in the Room" went to Jerry Graves, CalPortland, Tucson, AZ. Finally, taking the top spot on the Driving Challenge Course was the eventual second place finisher, Stephen Odehnal.

The Operations, Environmental & Safety Committee (OES) of NRMCA has named Greg Vickers, customer service manager for Continental Mixers, its 2015 Joseph E. Carpenter Award recipient. This award is named in honor of Joseph E. Carpenter of Rinker Materials, West Palm Beach, FL, who was instrumental in the formation and early operation of the NRMCA Committee on Maintenance. The award was instituted in 1988 and is presented annually to persons who have demonstrated outstanding lifetime contribution to the ready mixed concrete industry in the fields of operations, environmental and safety. 

Mr. Vickers was named the award recipient for his longtime commitment to the OES Committee and the ready mixed concrete industry. He has worked for more than 35 years in concrete-related industries, starting with several years of service at Miller & Long Co., the Washington, DC, area’s largest concrete contractor. He later served as quality control manager for NRMCA member company Tarmac America in Virginia (now doing business as Titan America) and in equipment sales roles for Bering Truck Corp., Schwing America, Inc. and Blasters Ready Jet, Inc. Mr. Vickers is currently working for Continental Mixers/ Navistar. Greg is also the representative for Continental to the Truck Mixer Manufacturers Bureau.

Greg was employed by NRMCA and led the Operations, Environmental and Safety Division at NRMCA headquarters for three years during the late 1990s. He is credited with many successful projects during those years, including the launch of the annual Fleet Benchmarking Survey and the revised Annual Safety Contest. He returned eight years later under the OES Department, heading operational efforts that included taking the lead staff role for the National Mixer Driver Championship and was the primary developer the NRMCA Fleet Managers Course. He has also done extraordinary work on a national level. Mr. Vickers is one of the primary developers of NRMCA’s National Mixer Driver Championship. Greg has been an active planner, participant and overseer of every championship. Greg has on numerous occasions volunteered his time as a speaker at various NRMCA training courses, including NRMCA’s Technical Short Course and Plant Manager, Dispatcher and Fleet Manager courses.

The award will be presented to Mr. Vickers in Orlando, FL, at the 2015 NRMCA Annual Convention in March 2015.

With hiring and retention of paramount importance in the recovery, it is critical that ready mixed concrete front line supervisors understand the scope and tasks they are expected to execute. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the most common business lawsuit filed is by employees against their employers - and the employees cite their direct supervisor as the cause. Therefore, the class audience is plant and area managers, operations, dispatch, fleet and driver supervisors, as well as QC supervisors. Content includes industry-specific, hands-on exercises to develop solid procedures to increase efficiency and profitability using better communication skills with front line employees. The class will be held November 18-20 at NRMCA headquarters in Silver Spring, MD.
 
The Effective Supervisor Course is held just once a year. Training reduces risk: No producer’s bottom line can afford an expensive internal attack.

SUSTAINABILITY
This past month, the General Services Administration took steps to engage in a supplemental review of the latest version of LEED from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), published in November 2013. The purpose of the review was to examine how LEEDv4 aligns with existing federal statutory, regulatory and executive order green building requirements. Previously, GSA recommended the federal government use LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) 2009 and the Green Globes 2010 for federal construction and renovation projects. The GSA is the largest real estate owner in the U.S. and is required every five years under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 to examine its green building policies.

According to the report, the new LEEDv4 Material and Resources credits (which includes environmental product declarations, health product declarations and responsible sourcing) scored less than full credit for alignment with Federal requirements. That is, the LEEDv4 certification system has options that meet the Federal Requirement or those options may have a lower standard, different baselines, different calculation methods or different ways to document compliance with the Federal Requirement.

GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS
Media articles on Congress, transportation infrastructure, regulation, taxes and other subjects, each of which relate to the ready mixed concrete industry, are updated each week by NRMCA's Government Affairs staff. To access the most recent compilation of articles for September 22 - 26, please click here.

If you would like to receive this weekly updated link in a separate e-mail, or if you have questions or comments about the roundup, contact NRMCA’s Elizabeth Fox at efox@nrmca.org.
 
Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11), introduced the Safer Trucks and Buses Act (H.R. 5532), which halts the publication of flawed safety scores for carriers in the Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA) program and directs the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to revamp its scoring system. Barletta’s legislation addresses problems with CSA that have been highlighted by multiple independent government sources and the RMC industry. 

The legislation requires FMCSA to stop publishing safety scores compiled under the current system on its Web site and prevents these scores from being used as evidence in liability cases until the program is fixed. In the meantime, FMCSA is required to submit to Congress and implement an improvement plan. Only when the scores are improved will they be available for the public. The bill addresses all the concerns that NRMCA has voiced with CSA, including requiring FMCSA to incorporate any data on fault into the Crash BASIC calculations.

For more information, please contact NRMCA’s Elizabeth Fox at efox@nrmca.org.
 
On September 9, the House passed H.R. 5078, the Waters of the United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act, 262 - 152. Thirty-five Democrats joined Republicans to overwhelmingly pass the bill which was hailed by members as a common-sense approach to prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers from finalizing their proposed rule that would redefine "waters of the United States" under the Clean Water Act and pursue a better regulatory process going forward.

In April, the Obama Administration proposed this "waters of the U.S." rule, which would lead to an unprecedented expansion of federal regulatory jurisdiction. Under this expansive proposed rule, all tributaries – even small streams and ponds that only flow irregularly or when it rains – and all adjacent waters and wetlands, fall under this definition as federally-controlled waters and all the bureaucratic rules, onerous regulations and costly requirements that entails. NRMCA has long been concerned about how expansion of federal jurisdiction over marginal waters would place an undue burden on ready mixed concrete operations, aggregate operations and new construction starts.

Voice your support for pulling back this overreaching rule here. For more information, please contact NRMCA’s Elizabeth Fox at efox@nrmca.org.
 
CONCRETEPAC thanks our corporate sponsors of this year’s events held during NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks Conference & Expo and Board of Directors’ Meeting at the J.W. Marriott Indianapolis. During the course of the week, CONCRETEPAC hosted many events, including a door prize drawing of an Apple iPad during the Mixer Driver Championship Dinner on Monday night. The winner of this year’s door prize drawing was Mr. Thomas Sheffield of CEMEX. CONCRETEPAC closed the week with a very successful and thoroughly enjoyable Under the Sea dinner, held at the Indianapolis Zoo in its Oceans Pavilion with live shark touch tank, penguins, seals and sea lions, polar bear and walrus exhibits. Guests were also invited to watch a private dolphin show at the Zoo’s Marsh Pavilion.

CONCRETEPAC events were a huge success thanks to this year’s sponsors, which included NRMCA member companies Anderson Concrete Corporation, Ash Grove Cement Company, CalPortland Company, Central Concrete Supermix, Chaney Enterprises, Concrete Supply Company, Essroc Cement Corporation, The Euclid Chemical Company, Fritz-Pak Corporation, GCC Mid-Continent Concrete Company, Grace Construction Products, Irving Materials, Inc., Lafarge, Lehigh Hanson, Inc., Manatt’s, Inc., MMC Materials, Inc. Oldcastle Materials, Inc., Prairie Material/Votorantim Cement North America, Riviera Brush Company, Stephens Manufacturing Company, Trucks & Parts of Tampa, U.S. Concrete, Inc. and Vulcan Materials Company.

The money raised from hosting these events helps CONCRETEPAC to build a political war chest heading into the mid-term election, but corporate sponsorship allows us to underwrite the cost of hosting events. CONCRETEPAC is the NRMCA’s bipartisan, multi-candidate federal political action committee with the stated goal of electing pro-business, pro-ready mixed concrete candidates to the U.S. Congress.

EDUCATION &TRAINING
It is with great pleasure that the Educational Activities Committee announces that the 2014 Innovation in Training Award is awarded to Oldcastle Materials Group, Midwest Division, for its "Environmental Education for the Construction Industry". A critical aspect of the program is keeping ready mixed concrete staff actively engaged during their annual review of environmental best practices and compliance regulations. After surveying previous years’ participants, Oldcastle author Joe McGuire developed a curriculum that focused on small group discussions and exercises within the formal review. With issues and applied solutions shared among peers, post-training measurement shows retention and commitment increased substantially.  

The award was presented at NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks awards luncheon held last week in Indianapolis. As the winning entry, "Environmental Education for the Construction Industry" will be featured in an upcoming edition of NRMCA’s Concrete InFocus quarterly magazine.
