program that helps to establish a shotcrete contractor’s qualifications through review of the contractor’s work by the ASA Contractor’s Qualification committee, whose members have extensive experience in successful shotcrete work. This qualification program provides a distinct service to the industry. The qualification is expected to be highly beneficial to specifiers of shotcrete projects who want to be assured shotcrete contractors selected for their project have a proven work record. This qualification program is based on the previously referenced ASA Board Position Statement, “Shotcrete Contractor and Crew Qualifications.” At this point, the CQC has developed the overall guidelines for the qualification process. We are currently working on developing a 1-day seminar covering the basics required for shotcrete contractors. Topics for this 1-day seminar include: Program Overview; Site Planning/Logistics; Shotcrete Applications; Concrete Knowledge; Shotcrete Equipment; Shotcrete Knowledge; Shotcrete Testing; Equipment Maintenance; Safety; and Financial. The intent of the seminar is for all qualified shotcrete contractors to have a working knowledge of all the aspects of producing quality shotcrete. As a result, the seminar will be a prerequisite for the contractor qualification. We have a very active CQC and welcome your participation in what we feel is an essential part of what ASA is all about—helping to consistently prove to the concrete construction industry that quality shotcrete placement is a viable and desirable alternative to form-and-pour concrete.
