This year for the first time Concrete Construction magazine offers free step forming seminars as part of the Tools Demos located in the Artistry Demo area of the Concrete Surfaces & Decorative Pavilion. There are a total of six seminars lasting one hour each. Two seminars focus on standard step forms, two focus on cantilever steps, and two are about curved step forming procedures.

The seminars are conducted by an experienced concrete contractor presenting practical jobsite-related situations. Each instructor will build a set of step forms with special attention given to accurate layout, using advanced laser layout tools that accurately plot level, plumb, and square.

The seminar schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.: Standard Step Forming
Wednesday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.: Cantilevered Step Forming
Thursday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.: Curved Step Forming

Each seminar is limited to 20 participants. Sign-up sheets are located at the Tool Demo area at the Artistry Demos.
