Decorative Concrete Joins with American Concrete Institute & American Society of Concrete Contractors

in Associations/News

Decorative Concrete, has become a joint committee of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, according to Bruce Suprenant, technical director, ASCC. Committee chair is Clark Branum, Diamatic.

The mission of ACI 310 is to “develop and report information on the application of artistic finishes of cast-in-place concrete.” The committee has published ACI 310R-13, Guide to Decorative Concrete. The guide describes techniques for imparting decorative finishes to concrete flatwork including detailed, practical guidance for achieving aesthetic effects using proven techniques. Recommendations are made for the production of cast-in-place decorative concrete flatwork, decorative stains, and overlays.

“The Decorative Concrete Council (DCC) has been a specialty council of the ASCC for 20 years, “says Branum,” and many DCC members are active on ACI 310. It makes perfect sense to bring the expertise and experiences of the two groups to bear more closely on this committee.”

The ASCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of those who build with concrete, and to providing them a unified voice in the construction industry.  Members include concrete contracting firms, manufacturers, suppliers and others interested in the concrete industry such as architects, specifiers and engineers.  There are approximately 750 member companies in the United States and 11 foreign countries.  For more information visit the web site at www.ascconline.org or call 866-788-2722.

American Society of Concrete Contractors Forms Mentor Advisory Board

in Associations/News

The Emerging Leaders Committee of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, has formed a Mentor Advisory Board to provide advice to ASCC members who don’t need a full-time mentor, but could use the experience and wisdom of a seasoned counterpart.

Advisory Board members are long time ASCC members with decades of concrete contracting field and management experience. They will handle questions regarding contracts and other legal matters, business development, business management, safety operations and finance.

“This Board is meant for brief telephone calls between contractor members,” explained Kevin Riley, chair of the ASCC Emerging Leaders Committee. Staff matches callers with Advisory Board members so there is no conflict of interest.

Three years ago the Emerging Leaders Committee established a mentor/mentee program for ASCC members which pairs concrete construction professionals with lesser experienced contractors in a long term guided program to share knowledge and experiences. “Mentees can be any ASCC member seeking to augment their general knowledge or someone looking for guidance in a particular discipline,” says Todd Scharich, ASCC director of member services.

The ASCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of those who build with concrete, and to providing them a unified voice in the construction industry.  For more information, visit www.ascconline.org or call the ASCC office at (866) 788-2722.
