The 2013 International Concrete Sustainability Conference is scheduled for May 6-8 in San Francisco at the Hotel Sofitel San Francisco Bay (Redwood City, CA). The 8th annual conference, hosted by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, will provide learning and networking opportunities on the latest advances, technical knowledge, continuing research, tools and solutions for sustainable concrete manufacturing and construction. The Tilt-Up Concrete Association is a co-sponsor of the conference.

Researchers, academics, students, engineers, architects, contractors, concrete producers, public works officials, material suppliers and concrete industry professionals are invited to attend the conference. Over 60 world renowned speakers will present the latest developments related to design, specifying, manufacturing, testing, construction, maintenance and research of concrete as they relate to sustainability:

  • Life Cycle Assessment – Assessing carbon footprint, embodied energy and other environmental impacts for buildings, infrastructure, and cement and concrete manufacturing.
  • Low Impact Development – Pervious pavements and erosion control structures. Urban heat island reduction, light colored pavements, green roofs and cool communities.
  • Green Concrete – Recycled and alternative materials, including aggregates, water, cementitious materials and fuels. Beneficial use of byproducts for cement and concrete production.
  • New Concrete Technology – Durability, extended service life models and validation, performance-based specifications to foster sustainability. Innovative concrete production methods.
  • Sustainability Initiatives – Green building codes and standards adopted by building owners, designers, contractors and product manufacturers. Economic incentives and legislation.
  • Functional Resilience – High performance concrete applications in buildings and infrastructure, fortified building codes and community initiatives focusing on disaster resistance and adaptive reuse.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
