Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Portland Cement Association North Central Region (PCA-NC) hosted another in its series of concrete forums last week in metro Minneapolis, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen. The morning session, Economical Parking Lot Pavement for Schools, was targeted to school facility personnel and focused on new and overlay parking lot pavements with a strong emphasis on the growing number of school parking lot concrete overlay projects from around the nation and in Minnesota. After the session, the current chairman of Minnesota Educational Facilities Management Professionals Association suggested that the presentation be on its 2016 conference program, Hansen said.
"This is what we all hope happens from a local event like the Minnesota Concrete Forums", said Hansen who was the keynote speaker at the event. "One person in the audience, who sees the value in what is presented and realizes the need for a larger audience to know the information, like his state facility association, is the core of concrete promotion...and in starting a trend of change in a state like Minnesota that has less than 5% market share overall for concrete parking lots."
