Kentucky Engineers, Consultants Briefed on Specifying with Concrete

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In its quest to continually look for opportunities to present the benefits of specifying with concrete, the Kentucky Ready-Mixed Concrete Association recently invited NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Amy Miller to speak to the Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet in Frankfort on Concrete Parking Lot Design Opportunities. The goal of this meeting was to explain to state engineers as well as consultants to Kentucky the reasons why they should be asking for a concrete specification on all projects as an owner or specifying concrete on all projects if they are consultants.

"We had spoken to a similar group regarding the proper way to design, but failed to explain to them the missed opportunities of not having a concrete specification in every job they bid," Miller said. "Owners can’t afford NOT to have an equivalent concrete specification on every job. Having concrete in the specification saves money and, in this case, the taxpayers of Kentucky are the ones missing out on those savings."

The meeting was well attended and the consultants and owners alike discussed incorporating concrete to alleviate those missed cost saving opportunities, Miller added.
