Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

A free Webinar titled Sustainable Concrete-The Role of Performance-based Specifications is scheduled for Wednesday, April 24 from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Concrete is used in nearly every structure we build today, including buildings, bridges, homes and infrastructure. With greater emphasis placed on sustainability in recent years, engineers, architects, contractors and concrete producers are faced with the challenge of meeting traditional design criteria in addition to evolving criteria that support sustainable construction. Performance-based specifications for concrete can substantially help meet this new challenge. Prescriptive requirements such as minimum cement content or maximum water to cement ratio are among many common specification requirements that can increase the environmental footprint of concrete.  This Webinar outlines how concrete performance can be improved while lowering environmental footprint by implementing performance-based specifications.
