Build with Strength to Hold Seminar in Alabama on Design Strength of Concrete
Build with Strength has teamed with the Alabama Concrete Industries Association to present its seminar for architects, engineers, builders and developers. During "A Day of Concrete Knowledge" offered on both Wednesday, September 7, in Huntsville and Thursday, September 8, in Birmingham, the presentation will focus on performance in buildings. Building materials play a big role in energy use and deciding the safety and resiliency of the built environment. Through design solutions demonstrated in this workshop, designers, architects and engineers can focus on strength rather than disaster response, resulting in investments that are secure and generate long-term value to the owners.
This presentation will explore emerging trends in housing and development; innovations in concrete construction; case studies that showcase building value generation; economical design of concrete wall and floor systems; and how to utilize free resources to design structures. The program offers architects and engineers two hours of professional learning credits, along with four hours of additional concrete-related topics.
Build with Strength is a first-of-its-kind program for the concrete industry, designed not only to support our members, their businesses and the hard-working men and women of the concrete industry, but also to change the way people think about concrete construction versus direct competitors like soft-wood lumber.
