What is the value to your organization?
The shotcrete process offers numerous quality, efficiency, and sustainability advantages, but proper knowledge of the process is critical to the creation of a quality specification and for the success of any specifier/owner employing the process. Maintaining a high level of quality for concrete placed via the shotcrete method is ASA’s primary concern and we have found this type of onsite presentation to be an excellent tool for all involved. Typically these are 60-minute presentations, including Q&A, but can be tailored to accommodate your needs. ASA is a registered AIA/CES Provider.
