Colorado Hosts ICF Training Session
The Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association and the Insulating Concrete Forms Manufacturers Association (ICFMA) recently hosted an Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) installation training event, reports NRMCA Project Manager, Concrete Construction, Derek Torres. ICFs are quickly becoming the method of choice for all forms of construction due to ICF attributes such as speed and safe construction, operation maintenance and energy savings, resilience, sound control and building insurance discounts. These benefits are creating ICF project demand and this training delivers a knowledgeable contractor workforce that can augment a portfolio of construction services. Architects, engineers, concrete contractors and ready mixed concrete producers were in attendance. (Seen here are Sam Johnson at right and Kent Yonker of ICF-MA/Logix addressing the audience and demonstrating the benefits and advantages of ICF construction.)
Build With Strength (BWS) has recently partnered with ICFMA and launched ICF contractor training. The training is driven locally by NRMCA state affiliates and is targeting concrete contractors, framers, masons and other tradepersons who will learn the techniques to expand their construction services portfolio and be more competitive in today’s construction environment.
As part of the BWS campaign, NRMCA promotes sustainable concrete solutions for buildings. For more information, contact Derek Torres at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-876-0938.
