RMC Foundation Executive Director Julie Garbini provided information on the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub’s work along with NRMCA’s Build with Strength campaign. Portland Cement Association’s Larry Novak detailed the design and construction of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE.
