PCA report delves resilient construction at big picture, granular levels
Published: Thursday, 09 May 2019 10:13 Written by Concrete News
A new PCA report presents historical data, evidence from external sources, and structural material comparisons supporting the premise: Cast-in-place or precast concrete, or concrete masonry construction methods lead to longer lasting buildings owing to their ability to stand up to normal wear and tear plus resistance to extreme weather events.
“The Real Value of Resilient Construction” addresses design, engineering and life cycle criteria for owners and lawmakers or officials behind policy affecting public or private building design. "U.S. taxpayers cannot afford to continue building and rebuilding the way we did in the past. Strong, robust structures ensure community continuity and provide long lasting value for scarce taxpayer dollars," says PCA CEO Michael Ireland—emphasizing a position the industry has held as Congress and government agencies take stock of escalating post-disaster costs rooted in sub-par construction.

The Tampa MCAF Apprentice Program & chapter meeting “on the slab” was held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at the CEMEX Block Plant in Tampa. The MCAF apprentices had a chance to showcase some of their masonry skills. Thank you to everyone who took the time on a Saturday to come out and support Florida's future generation of masons.

Immediately following the masonry expo, the MCAF gave a salute to their graduating apprentices along with a luncheon catered by Mission B-B-Q.
