The Borough of Edgewater, NJ, Zoning Board recently held a hearing to consider rebuilding the burned-down Avalon at Edgewater apartment complex with the same lightweight wood-frame construction method that caused the fire in the first place.
Build with Strength, a coalition led by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, released a new poll that found registered New Jersey voters strongly support the state making changes to construction codes in the wake of the January 2015 Edgewater fire.
NRMCA exhibited its Build with Strength program at CONSTRUCT 2016, held earlier this month in Austin, TX. CONSTRUCT is the conference of the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI).
NRMCA Producer members MMC Materials and Bayou Concrete are installing the Build with Strength logos on some 50 mixer trucks, reports NRMCA's Michael Wymant.
