NRMCA Producer Member Holds Virtual Concrete Parking Lot Boot Camp
NRMCA Producer member Concrete Supply Co., Charlotte, NC, recently hosted its first Concrete Parking Lots Boot Camp, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Phil Kresge. The Boot Camp was coordinated by Concrete Supply Business Development Manager Drew Turner and included individuals from the company’s sales team as well as from the concrete division of Duncan, SC, based Sloan Construction Company. Not only was this the first Boot Camp for Concrete Supply, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was also the first to be hosted virtually. Kresge and his colleague, Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen, presented the 10-hour program remotely to the participants who were in several separate locations.
Additionally, Hansen provided a special opportunity for the Boot Camp attendees to participate in a webinar titled Concrete Overlays of Existing Asphalt Surfaced Street and Parking Lots which was hosted by the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC). Hansen worked with ASCC Director of Member Services Jill Zeller to help incorporate the concurrently-running webinar into the Boot Camp agenda.
Conducted by the NRMCA Local Paving Team, Concrete Parking Lots Boot Camp is a 10-hour program, typically conducted over two days at a contractor or ready mix producer’s site. The program includes in-depth review of ACI 330 Guide for the Design and Construction of Concrete Parking Lots, Guide to Concrete Overlays of Existing Asphalt Parking Lots, and NRMCA’s Concrete Pavement Analyst Design and Cost Comparison software. Additionally, attendees are coached on where and how to prospect for new business. Following this Boot Camp, Turner reported that he sees a lot of value in the information provided and is looking to identify additional Boot Camp opportunities.
