Western New York Producer Hosts Educational Day for Architects and Engineers

In its continuing effort to educate the design community, NRMCA Producer member United Materials hosted an education/trade show in Buffalo last week. One of the guest speakers, NRMCA Senior Director, Local Paving, Doug O’Neill, took a new approach to the topic of ACI 330. "I titled the discussion Clients Benefit from Concrete Parking Lot Alternate in an attempt to highlight the importance from a designer’s standpoint in offering a legitimate concrete alternate so that his or her clients can benefit from increased competition on a project. Not to mention getting a much more affordable and properly designed pavement," O’Neill said.

The seminar points out the many benefits for a design team to use ACI 330 and why having a legitimate concrete option benefits its clients. The day itself also offered attendees a chance to visit with vendors, United Materials sales staff and earn valuable educational credits as well, O'Neill added.
