Join Concrete Promotional Group for this presentation on concrete.

Concrete is unique among building materials. Its formulation is highly influenced by its application. Design professionals and contractors have a greater influence on concrete formulation than they do with other building products. Concrete can be made stronger, lighter, more flowable, stiffer, less permeable, and even weaker depending on performance needs. All these formulations can be made at the same factory, within minutes of one another. No other building material is that versatile. Concrete is used in nearly every structure where people live, work, learn, and play. It is part of the infrastructure that connects us. It’s the material that helped build modern society and will likely be part of improving modern society for some time. This presentation will discuss how design and construction teams can implement ten simple strategies to reduce concrete’s carbon footprint today. The recommendations are listed broadly in order of priority, but not in order of impact reduction. All are important and should be implemented. In addition, the strategies are meant to achieve a lower carbon footprint without impacting other traditional performance criteria for concrete.
