Shotcrete Corner T a quality, durable, and flexible process for placinghe American Shotcrete Association (ASA) strives toenhance the visibility and acceptance of shotcrete as concrete in a wide variety of structures. To advance our industry, it is of paramount importance that shotcrete be placed with the best quality in a safe working environment. Achieving these goals in practice requires experience, specialized training, proper equipment, and attention to detail. The ASA Board of Direction firmly believes that to provide a quality shotcrete product requires not only ACI-certified nozzlemen but also a shotcrete contracting firm with the management team committed to quality, proper staffing, providing appropriate equipment, and crew safety. It also requires a shotcrete crew well-trained and experienced in the type of work they will be shotcreting. This Position Paper #1 solidifies our position on the qualifications of the shotcrete team and provides owners, engineers, architects, and any others guidance when estab- lishing the credentials of shotcrete contractors undertaking their projects.
