Concrete Forums Held in Florida, Georgia Reach Wide Audience

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

After attending a recent Concrete Forum for Northeast Florida, a county engineer who was there courtesy of Jeff Salter, accounts manager for NRMCA Producer CEMEX, requested a similar presentation for engineers in the Southeast Georgia area. The half-day presentation was sponsored by CEMEX and then held May 2 in Brunswick, GA. The presentation consisted of four presenters:
  • Amy Miller, senior national resource director, NRMCA, began with an overview of concrete pavements as well as design and specification of concrete pavements.
  • Michael Davy, a CEMEX market development manager, spoke on construction of concrete pavements, including overlays and intersections.
  • Bob Nicholson, paving application director from the Georgia Concrete Paving Association, spoke on Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) and was able to share RCC projects local to Georgia.
  • Lastly was NRMCA’s Brian Killingsworth, senior director of pavement structures who provided information on specifying materials and construction and also spoke on maintenance of concrete pavements.
"We believe the information at this seminar will help further generate an interest in concrete pavements in this market," Salter said.

"As is the case with any local streets and road promotion,  a first step is to find someone within the county/municipality that can make decisions and understands the benefits of using concrete," Miller added. "Jeff identified this person in Glynn County, GA. As a result of Jeff bringing this engineer to the Florida venue, we were happy to put together a team of industry professionals that could present the county and designers with information to help them understand the missed opportunity when concrete is not at least an option."
