Driving the Concrete Pavement Industry Forward

In the realm of surface transportation construction, the decision about which type of pavement material is used for highways, roads, airports and other facilities comes down to either concrete or asphalt pavement materials. Pavement surface type may be binary, but the choice is based on many subset decisions around many factors. Those factors may include initial cost, ownership or life-cycle cost, maintenance of traffic, network asset management, sustainability, and other considerations that tip the balance for the pavement type.

Heavily Focused on Safety and Training

The American Concrete Pumping Association (ACPA) was created to advocate for the concrete pumping industry with a particular emphasis on safety. In 1974, when the association began, one of the biggest challenges was persuading contractors to accept the concept of a concrete pump over crane and bucket, truck dumping, or other concrete laying methods. At that time, the pumping equipment was not as reliable as it is today, but over the years there have been numerous innovations in concrete pumping equipment.

Associated Equipment Distributors (AED), headquartered in Schaumburg, Illinois, is an international trade association within the construction equipment industry that serves its members well. For almost a century, AED has epitomized the crucial role that distributors play in the American economy.

Developing Strong Foundations for Cast-In-Place Contracting

As important as it is to keep up with the latest developments in safety, it is tough for typical, cast-in-place concrete contractors to find the time to get away from business to educate themselves in industry trends. This is why the Concrete Foundations Association (CFA) stepped in to save the day. The association works exceptionally hard to serve companies that specialize in in-situ concrete casting.

More Than Just a Trend

The construction industry is typically slow to evolve. Despite the existence of countless new innovations and technologies, and safer, better ways to do things, it is an industry where tried and true construction methods and long-accepted materials are seldom replaced by a new product or approach.
