DIFFERENT USES OF CONCRETE
Concrete has been used in construction for thousands of years, dating back to the Roman Empire. It is currently one of the most used construction materials in the world and shapes our communities in the form of buildings, homes, roads, curbs, bridges and much more. Let’s explore the different uses of concrete!
Concrete is one of the most durable building materials in the world. Certain guidelines must be followed in order to ensure proper handling, placing, finishing and curing of the freshly placed concrete.
WORLD OF CONCRETE 2017
On January 16-20, 2017, World of Concrete took place at the Las Vegas Convention Centre. It is the only annual international event dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. Every year, WOC attracts over 1,500 exhibitors and 60,000 registered industry professionals, and occupies more than 700,000 net square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibit space.
COLD WEATHER CONCRETING
Workability of ready-mix concrete is affected by weather. Certain precautions must be taken in order to ensure proper handling, placing, finishing and curing of the freshly placed concrete. Now that the weather is getting colder, the process of placing concrete calls for extra attention. As the temperatures drop (especially below 5 °C), concrete will lose moisture and heat rapidly, affecting its setting time, strength and long-term durability.
