A new type of concrete that uses calcium carbonate could transform the material from a big emitter of carbon dioxide to a tool to sequester the greenhouse gas. Brent Constantz, CEO of Blue Planet, says the calcium for the new product can be obtained from either seawater or brine while the carbonate could be extracted from power plant flue gases.

Wayne Stephen, president of NRMCA Producer member The Wayne Companies, recently invited NRMCA Senior Director, National Resources, Doug O’Neill to help convince officials in a Southwestern New York State town to use roller compacted concrete (RCC) for a section of street that was closed because of deteriorated asphalt.

"This winter has been tough on many towns in the Northeast that have experienced significant deterioration of local streets and need long-term fixes that can meet their ever-tightening budgets," O’Neill explained. "Over the years, Wayne and his team have developed relationships with many town highway superintendents and continue to advocate for giving the concrete industry an opportunity, but it always comes down to initial cost. Now that they’ve had proven success with RCC, they can offer towns a third pavement option that most often can be placed at less cost than conventional asphalt."

"Change is hard to adopt for many communities, so having the presence of NRMCA and its Design Assistance Program, not to mention having Doug attend this town hall meeting to explain the concrete industry’s commitment to proper design and construction means a great deal," Stephen added. O'Neill noted that Stephen also often relies heavily on Greg Novitzki with the New York Concrete Promotion Council who has attended other similar meetings in the past.

This potential project could have considerable implications; several other streets in the town are scheduled to be repaired or replaced. Stephen plans to invite several of the surrounding town’s highway superintendents to visit during placement to help educate them as well. After the meeting, Stephen was approached by a local citizen who said, "I’ve got several parking lots, let’s get together and discuss this". It turns out this individual owns the majority of the lots in and around this town. This shows just another reason why ready mixed concrete producers should always be engaged with their local communities, O'Neill said.

A new LinkedIn discussion group just for those involved in concrete parking lot construction was launched last month, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Jon Hansen. "The idea of a national gathering place for contractors, designers and those who supply material and equipment for concrete parking lots came from a meeting in January when a group of industry partners met to figure out the best way to bring resources together specific to the design and construction of concrete parking lots," he explained. "The LinkedIn Concrete Parking Lot Construction Group is the result."

Here are the highlights of the group’s mission:
• The LinkedIn Concrete Parking Lot Construction Group is for those who construct, design and supply equipment and material for the construction of concrete parking lots.
• Topics for discussion will relate to new parking lot construction, rehabilitation of existing asphalt parking lots with concrete overlays, and repair and maintenance of concrete parking lots.
• The group is a collaboration of NRMCA, ASCC and ACPA members and is managed by NRMCA.

If your business currently involves concrete parking lots or if you want to learn about building, designing and maintaining concrete parking lots, the Concrete Parking Lot Construction Group is the place to go. Click here to view the site and request to join. To participate in this discussion group, please send a request through your LinkedIn account. Once approved, please send invitations to others.

An alternate design/alternate bid project on a Louisiana state road has resulted in a win for concrete paving and a 10% savings of $1.6 million to the taxpayers of Louisiana, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Amy Miller.

"Our partners in Louisiana, Brandon Hays and William Temple, P.E., both of the Concrete and Aggregates Association of Louisiana (CAAL), requested a modified design per the AASHTO design process when they saw the initial design was 10 inches of concrete versus 8 inches of asphalt. The resultant design was 8 inches of concrete with a higher strength, " reports Miller.

The win can ultimately be credited to a strong relationship between CAAL and the Louisiana Department of Transportation (LDOT). CAAL asked transportation officials to evaluate changes per the current AASHTO requirements administered by the LDOT. Temple, the CAAL executive director, added, "The new Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design process is anticipated to correct this inequity once it is implemented by the state as has been corrected in other states. Also, history has shown that alternate bidding can reduce bid costs for pavements in the order of 10% regardless of which material prevails."

NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Phil Kresge recently met with representatives from the Planning & Design and Construction departments of Advance Auto Parts at its headquarters in Roanoke, VA. Kresge used the opportunity to explain the benefits of concrete pavements, including conventional concrete, pervious concrete and roller-compacted concrete. He introduced the group to NRMCA’s Design Assistance Program (DAP) and detailed how DAP has helped other National Account clients. Bob Nablo, director of industry services for the Virginia Ready-Mixed Concrete Association, also attended the meeting and offered local assistance as might be needed.

There was interest from the group and Kresge discussed some specific projects with regard to entertaining conventional and pervious concrete design options. Additionally, there was significant interest in roller-compacted concrete as a viable alternative for warehousing and distribution center applications.

Operating over 3,800 stores in 40 states, Advance Auto Parts is the largest retailer of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States.

The ACI Spring Convention in Reno, NV, was held in late March. Following are updates of some activities that involved NRMCA representation.

NRMCA Staff Presentations
NRMCA’s Karthik Obla presented on the topic "How much SCMs do concrete producers use and how can it be increased" in a technical session titled "Hydration of Low Portland Cement Binders: Industry experiences and Needs". Karthik also presented on the topic "Performance Criteria for Preventing Physical Salt Attack on Concrete" based on the NRMCA Lab research at a task group of the Durability Technical Committee.

130 – Sustainability Committee - The committee balloted and resolved most negatives for the materials chapter of the guide to concrete sustainability. NRMCA’s Lionel Lemay worked to develop chapters on production and construction, which has been balloted and finalized. The Concrete Construction Sustainability Assessor program is still being developed. This program would be designed to assess an individual's knowledge of sustainable properties of concrete, including thermal mass, durability, pervious concrete, resilience, rating systems, carbon footprint, life cycle analysis, life cycle costing and other best practices. Lionel Lemay maintains representation on ACI 130.

132  Responsibilities in Concrete Construction - ACI 132 has completed a document that discusses the responsibilities of all stakeholders on a concrete construction project. The stakeholders include the owner, licensed design professional, general contractor, design builder, subcontractor, specialty engineers and subcontractors (those with some design responsibility), concrete material supplier, testing agency, construction manager and forensic consultant. It discusses associated responsibility with prescriptive and performance specifications. At this meeting, the committee completed its response to comments from TAC and made applicable revisions to the document. The ACI 132 document should be available from ACI later in summer. Colin Lobo maintains representation on ACI 132.

201 – Durability - The 201.2R Guide to Durable Concrete is being revised. All chapters have been completed – negatives to the Introduction and Conclusion were resolved. NRMCA has provided input to this document. A Task Group (TG) is working on a tech note for recommendations for physical salt attack. Recent NRMCA research findings were presented to this TG; a new rapid test for physical salt attack is being developed. Karthik Obla maintains representation on ACI 201.  

211 – Mixture Proportioning - A new ACI document is now available on concrete mixture submittals. NRMCA helped update this document which includes examples of prescriptive and performance submittals. Two new documents on mixture adjustments and mixture proportioning with ground limestone powder and mineral fillers have been approved. NRMCA provided input to both documents. A TG working on assessing aggregate gradings issued a ballot and NRMCA provided input to the document based on past research conducted at the NRMCA research laboratory. Karthik Obla maintains representation on ACI 211.

214 – Strength Tests - This committee is collecting project compressive strength test data to update the table showing the standards of concrete control for both testing variability as well as batch to batch variability. A new future session is planned to discuss 4 x 8 in. and 6 x 12 in. cylinder test results and whether the ACI 318 requirement that three 4x8 in. cylinders constitute a test result (as opposed to only two 6 x 12 in. cylinders) needs to be revised. NRMCA will be participating in this session. Karthik Obla is as an associate member.

232 – Fly Ash and Natural Pozzolans - The committee has successfully balloted revisions to address all the TAC comments on a new report on high volume fly ash (HVFA) concrete and the document is expected to be published soon. The committee voted to disband natural and processed pozzolans into a different committee due to the large number of such materials being increasingly used worldwide. This will allow this committee to focus on issues related to fly ash in concrete. The committee formed a task group to work on a new document "Guide to Specifying Fly Ash for Concrete Performance". The committee is involved in responding to the TAC suggestions on ACI 232.2R, Use of Fly Ash in Concrete. Tom Adams of ACAA reported that EPA has responded that the beneficial use of fly ash in concrete is a safe application. The complete presentation can be obtained by contacting Tom. In the next convention the committee is co-sponsoring two sessions on Improving Early-Age Properties of Concrete with SCM’s. Karthik Obla is the chairman of ACI 232.

301 – Specifications for Structural Concrete - ACI Committee 301 devoted about 20 hours of meeting time resolving issues from previous ballots in various sections of the specifications – concrete materials, construction, precast concrete, post-tensioned concrete, architectural concrete and the general section. The committee also addressed requirements for alkali silica reactions as a new item in ACI 301 and arrived at a consensus on stating requirements. The specification revisions will continue to evolve as resolution to ballots are completed. The committee has received a relatively final version of the reorganized ACI 318 Building Code and will develop needed revisions to ACI 301 to be consistent with ACI 318. ACI 301 is working toward completing its revised specification through the ACI review process (TAC and Public review) by Fall 2015. The Committee follows a schedule of Web conference calls every two weeks to address resolution to ballots and revisions to the specification. Colin Lobo maintains representation on ACI 301.

318 – Building Code for Structural Concrete - ACI Committee 318 has completed the reorganized Code following response to comments from ACI TAC, which resulted in some modest revisions to the document. The reorganized Code will be posted for public review – the last part of the process of completing an ACI standard – sometime in June. Members are encouraged to review and comment on the revised Code. The primary chapters of interest to concrete producers will be Chapter 19 – Concrete: Design and Durability Requirements and Chapter 26 – Construction Documents and Inspection. The Committee will address public comments at a special meeting in August. It is expected that the Code will be available early in Fall 2014 so that it can be referenced in the next version of the International Building Code. ACI Committee 318 will then be disbanded and a new committee will be formed for the next 6-year cycle. The new committee will meet at the ACI Fall Convention in Washington, DC. The new Committee 318 will be chaired by Jack Moehle, UC Berkeley.

There were several presentations by 318 Committee members on the reorganized Code at the ACI Convention and these were well received. Colin Lobo maintains representation on ACI 318.

329 – Performance Criteria for Ready Mixed Concrete - ACI Committee 329 has completed its guide document on performance requirements for concrete materials. The document is based on the ITG-8 report with committee revisions. The document is in the publication process and will be available in summer. The Committee has received approval from ACI TAC to develop a document on "how to write a performance specification". The document is intended to provide some general background and rationale and recommend specification clauses. The Committee decided to follow the sequence used in the MasterSpec format that design engineers are most familiar. The committee has developed an outline and will get consensus before working on developing the document. In parallel, there was some discussion on developing a seminar on the subject that could be offered by ACI. There might be possible funding from FHWA for dissemination part of this effort. Another goal of the committee is to make recommendations to ACI standards committees 301 and 318, suggesting performance-based alternatives to current requirements. Colin Lobo (secretary) and Karthik Obla maintain representation on Committee 329.

330 – Parking Lots - The ACI 330 Committee is completing the ACI 330X "Guide to Design and Construction of Industrial Pavements."  The task group spent considerable time editing all chapters for submission to the Technical Action Committee in preparation for the afternoon Committee meeting. The document will be sent to the Technical Activities Committee (TAC) for review at its summer meeting. The group also spent considerable time discussing threshold differences between the ACI 330 and 330X documents. A subcommittee has been created to offer recommendations to the Committee that will clearly differentiate the basis of utilizing each document. The end of the meeting allowed time for Committee members to discuss interesting projects/issues. Two Committee members discussed the benefit of utilizing the Design Assistance Program (DAP) offered by NRMCA. Amy Miller maintains representation on Committee 330.

ACI 332 – Residential Concrete - After finalizing the 2013 residential code, the committee has turned its focus to updating the guide to residential concrete in order to match the code. The process should be completed in 2014. Lionel Lemay maintains representation on ACI 332 and will chair the subcommittee on materials, production and delivery. Lemay updated the section in the guide and will ballot the section in May 2014.

522 – Pervious Concrete - The 522 Committee is updating the accompanying guide, ACI 522R-08. Several ballots were recently completed with more to come. A considerable focus will be providing guidance on proportioning of pervious concrete mixtures. A number of presentations were given, including one on finishing concrete using a skip float by Dave Mitchell; evaluating reinforcement corrosion in two layered concrete (pervious/conventional) by students under Dr. John Kevern, University of Missouri, and a presentation on paste film-forming used as a parameter for mixture proportioning given by a student at Clemson University. Updates were given by liaisons in associated organizations: American Society of Civil Engineers, NRMCA’s Pervious Subcommittee, ASTM, Pervious Concrete Pavement Association and the Transportation Research Board.  Amy Miller maintains representation on ACI 522.

555 – Recycled Materials - The document "Removal and Reuse of Hardened Concrete" is undergoing revisions and will include discussions on crushed returned concrete aggregates based on research work conducted at the NRMCA Research Laboratory. The committee is organizing two technical sessions at the next ACI convention in Washington, DC; a paper on the use of crushed concrete aggregate for internal curing based on research conducted at the NRMCA research laboratory will be presented. Karthik Obla maintains representation on ACI 555.

601B - Concrete Quality Technical Manager Certification - ACI has developed a new Concrete Quality Technical Manager (CQTM) certification program. It is intended that to work as a special inspector at any nuclear facilities' construction project, individuals will need to be certified as a Concrete Construction Special Inspector (CCSI) and CQTM.  The CQTM program measures the technical knowledge of a candidate in regards to mixture proportioning for normal, heavy and lightweight concretes, high strength concrete, durability issues, ingredient materials for concrete, evaluation of strength, CLSM, SCC and pervious concrete, and Building Code requirements related to concrete materials. The text for the exam comprises of the reports of over 20 technical committees. A pilot examination was held in Reno on March 26. The pilot exam comprised of a written and performance exam and lasted a total of 6 hours. About 20 personnel, including NRMCA’s Karthik Obla, took the pilot examination.

Late last month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a pre-publication version of its long-delayed Clean Water Act (CWA) Jurisdictional rulemaking. The rule is still being evaluated by NRMCA staff, but it appears to expand the types of waters covered by the CWA. NRMCA has long been concerned about how expansion of federal jurisdiction over marginal waters would place an undue burden on ready mixed concrete operations, aggregate operations and new construction starts. NRMCA is committed to the protection and restoration of America’s wetland resources. However, NRMCA has consistently opposed dramatic increases in federal authority, especially over marginal waters such as rarely flowing streams, groundwater and isolated ponds. NRMCA has not supported the Clean Water Restoration Act and EPA’s recent 2011 guidance document, which share many commonalities with the proposed rule. Expanding federal authority under the CWA would greatly increase the number of ready mix operations required to get permits for industrial and stormwater discharges and the number of construction sites required to obtain appropriate permits from the Army Corps, which will also result in the delay of construction projects. The Army Corps current backlog of permits ranges between 15,000 - 20,000 without including new waters. 
In September 2013, EPA published a draft report synthesizing the peer reviewed scientific literature on the connectivity of streams and wetlands to large bodies of water. NRMCA submitted comments on the draft report to the Science Advisory Board. While the peer-review of this rule has not been issued, EPA has stated that it will use the report as the scientific basis for the rulemaking. Questions have already been raised about why the rule has been released before the report has been finalized. Immediately following EPA’s announcement of the proposed rule, congressional committee chairmen, including Transportation and Infrastructure’s Bill Schuster and Water & Environment Subcommittee Chairman Bob Gibbs, blasted the rule and announced they will hold hearings on the matter.

The rule should be published in the Federal Register within the next two weeks, at which point the 90-day comment period begins. NRMCA will submit comments on the rule on behalf of the association and work with other industry partners and Congress to ensure the best possible outcome for the ready mix industry.

The proposed rule can be found here. For more information, contact Elizabeth Fox at or 240-485-1156.
Mark your calendars and start planning your trip to Washington, DC, for theTransportation Construction Coalition’s Fly-In and the third RALLY for ROADS on June 10-11. Federal transportation programs are facing a crisis. With MAP-21 set to expire September 30 and the Department of Transportation estimating that the Highway Trust Fund will run out of money as soon as July, there has never been a greater need for Congress to act.

This is the year to come to DC! Join your industry allies in Washington - your congressional delegation needs to hear from you about the importance of continued investment in transportation infrastructure to the nation's economy - creating jobs while building the future. As in the past, a legislative briefing is scheduled to update you on the latest congressional events; educational briefing packets will be prepared for you to deliver to your congressional delegation. In addition, this year's NRMCA RALLY for ROADS, the nation's largest transportation funding advocacy rally, will be held at 8 a.m. on June 11 so that you can attend. The rally will be held at Union Square on U.S. Capitol Grounds, Permit Area #15. Buses will take you from the hotel to the U.S. Capitol for the rally.

This year's meeting will be held at the Mayflower Renaissance Washington Hotel at 1127 Connecticut Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20036. Make your reservations directly with the Mayflower Renaissance Washington Hotel by calling 1-877-212-5752 or 1-202-347-3000. Please mention the group name TCC Fly-In for the discounted room rate of $309 per night which is guaranteed through the rooms cut-off date of Friday, May 9.

The transportation construction industry cannot afford to sit back and wait for Washington to act. Now is the time to demand action. New representatives and senators are unfamiliar with how these programs operate and the benefits they bring not only to their states and districts, but also the incredible contribution they make to the national economy. The Highway Trust Fund cannot support current road construction projects through this summer work season. Congress needs to understand that failure to address the Highway Trust Fund crisis and ensure sustainable funding undermines the construction industry sector - materials producers, contractors, equipment manufacturers, labor - builders of the America's surface transportation network essential to economic growth and prosperity.

Keep watching your inboxes and E-NEWS for more details and how to register for both events in the coming weeks. We hope to see you there - in hard hats and your usual work clothes. Thank you for your past support and we look forward to seeing you in June!
