NRMCA Discusses Performance Specifications Before Indiana Structural Engineers

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA Senior Vice President of Engineering Colin Lobo delivered a presentation on performance specifications to the Indiana Structural Engineers Association at its Spring Conference on March 3 in Indianapolis. Lobo’s invitation was facilitated by the Indiana Ready Mixed Concrete Association. The general goal of evolving to performance-based specification was outlined to the group of 75 practicing structural engineers. The primary message was to consider reviewing their specifications and eliminating some prescriptive requirements that are typically not in industry standards with suggested alternatives. Many attendees indicated that these requirements existed in their specifications but were unsure why. Some indicated that they would consider revising. Attendees were pointed to the resources on improving specification found on the NRMCA's Web site.
