Conference topics will include: avoiding common driveway issues, tilt-up construction, proper sawing techniques, paver vibrator problems and solutions, deicer-sealer compatibility, Missouri concrete overlay performance, compacted concrete pavement, sand and gravel availability, shrinkage compensating concrete, new admixtures, proper dosage and application of fibers, achieving rapid strength gain and durability, KCCMB/EMPC specifications, proper specification of concrete classes on a building project, special inspections of buildings, MoDOT’s sand classification system, CP Tech Center update, I-435 design-build project, Bagnell Dam Rehabilitation project, and MoDOT’s current research.
Participants could earn certificates for approximately 10 personal development hours.
Organizers say the conference will be of interest to building and paving contractors, public agencies, consulting engineers, testing labs, aggregate producers, ready mix, cement and admixture suppliers, and equipment technical representatives.
