Meeting with Mormon Church Officials Yields Concrete Opportunities

A recent meeting with those charged with building and maintaining properties owned by the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints (LDS) uncovered many opportunities for the concrete industry, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, National Resources, Jon Hansen. The meeting, held at an LDS office located within Temple Square in Salt Lake City, was arranged by Matt Wood, Stuart Malley and Doug Johnson with Ash Grove Cement and included Hansen.

"New online construction specifications where shown to those attending, information on how to access those specifications was shared and the concrete industry was asked to comment on those specifications," Hansen said. "Additionally, the church spends tens of millions each year in repair and maintenance costs for asphalt parking lot paving and is looking for concrete industry input on that topic as well."
