Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Florida Concrete & Products Association in conjunction with the American Concrete Institute - Jacksonville, FL, chapter recently held a Concrete Sustainability Day at the University of North Florida (UNF). The day was filled with various speakers from the concrete industry, including NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Amy Miller who discussed the sustainable aspects of concrete as well as incorporating concrete in parking lot design through ACI 330 - The Guide and Design of Concrete Parking Lots. After the speakers, there was a live demonstration showing pervious concrete, flowable fill and self consolidating concrete.

"The goal for this function was to give owners, designers and students (future designers) the chance for education on all the sustainable aspects of concrete as well as the functional benefits," Miller said. "UNF faculty were also involved in the meeting and encouraged their students to participate in the lectures and network with professionals in the concrete industry."
