Parking Lot Workshops Unlock Market Opportunities

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Two more concrete parking lot workshops have been conducted by NRMCA’s Senior Director, National Resources, Doug O’Neill; this time hosted by the New York Construction Materials Association and its vice president, Greg Novitzki, P.E. The attendees in both Buffalo and Syracuse were challenged to come up with specific opportunities to employ the strategies proposed at each workshop and, as it turns out, they were well up to the challenge, O'Neill said.
"Right now, we have five separate meetings with owners or developers to discuss specific projects in the design phase," reports O’Neill. "The group of attendees included ready mixed concrete producer sales staff, cement and admix personnel, fiber representatives and contractors. The low hanging fruit such as auto dealerships, health care facilities, schools and other mid-size, locally-owned projects are easily identified and already on the radar for things like floor slabs, footings and sidewalks."

These workshop stress the fundamental action of asking, "What about the Parking Lot?" For more information on them or NRMCA's "Concrete Boot Camps," contact your national resource director or Doug O’Neill at
