Larry Novak, Jack Gibbons, and Marc Nard with PCA will present an informative discussion on how codes, resiliency and the wood threat are impacting your current and future business. Codes and Standards govern the "rules" that the construction industry must follow and can be influenced to advance your business. It is our vision that model building codes, as well as state and major municipal building codes, fairly reflect the intrinsic benefits of construction with concrete relative to other materials. Working together, we can influence codes for the advancement for the concrete industry and a more resilient tomorrow.

Topics Include:

  • Market Analytics
  • Reinforced Concrete vs. Wood Construction - Wood Stick built and Wood Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
  • Steps to Advance the use of concrete National and Local Codes
  • Building Better Communities with Concrete
  • Analyze the Economic and Resiliency Advantages of Improving Codes to Increase Business

This program is geared to contractors, management, agencies/owners, engineers, consultants'/owners' representatives, and material & equipment suppliers. All are welcome!
