Concrete 2029 continues developing roadmap and vision for the future

Spearheaded by the American Society of Concrete Contractors and facilitated by the ACI Foundation’s Strategic Development Council, Concrete 2029 was recently launched as a strategic initiative to develop a vision and roadmap for the future of the concrete construction industry. This initiative was launched to secure the future of the concrete construction industry by getting in front of issues such as the misconstrued image of concrete, code struggles, loss of market share to other building materials, declining productivity and a shortage of workers in concrete construction. The initial workshop, held prior to SDC Technology Forum #39, took place in May in San Antonio, Texas. The meetings focused on issues such as defining and improving in-place concrete quality, increasing workplace productivity and improving industry promotion and perception. The presentations included the misconstrued image of concrete, consequences of poor design, the owner’s mindset, what must happen to improve productivity and attracting and training the right people. Participants acknowledge that a clear vision and excellent strategy are vital for the concrete construction industry to thrive in the future. With this in mind, SDC announces Concrete 2029’s second workshop, which will further define and prioritize the goals to populate a roadmap for the concrete construction industry. Concrete 2029’s second workshop will be held Sept. 7 in Salt Lake City, Utah preceding SDC’s Technology Forum #40. àà àà
