NRMCA Senior Director, National Resources, Phil Kresge recently traveled to France to participate in a Concrete Applications Workshop at the Orly (suburban Paris) offices of NRMCA Producer member CEMEX. The workshop was an in-house training program for company sales and technical support personnel from across Europe and the Middle East. Kresge contributed to the pervious concrete portion of the program, presenting on pervious concrete’s role in stormwater management, design and construction of pervious concrete pavement and quality control/quality assurance testing of pervious concrete. Other presenters on pervious concrete included Rafael Jimenez and Michael Kohout, both from CEMEX USA, Julien Chapelat from CEMEX Research Group, Switzerland, and Nathan Mitchell from Bunyan Springs, Inc. As part of the training, attendees were tested on their pervious concrete knowledge, using review questions from NRMCA's Pervious Concrete Contractor Certification training manual. 

Other topics in the program included decorative concrete applications and thin overlay (screed) applications for concrete floors. A demonstration placement included colored and stamped concrete and two pervious concrete placements.
