The forum provides a platform for examining and incrementally addressing challenges facing the concrete industry. An important facet of SDC’s efforts over the last 2 years has been working with ASCC on a strategic plan for the concrete construction industry. This initiative “Concrete 2029” has used the SDC as a venue for gathering members from all segments of concrete construction together to help shape a plan that is relevant and useful to our industry. As in several previous forums, there will be a Concrete 2029 workshop following the main SDC Forum. The SDC Technology Forum 42 will include technology showcases, SDC activity updates, research trends, and a tour of the FHWA’s Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center.
