2014 TCA Convention

The Sustainability of Concrete

Hernan Perez, Technical Services Director of Ready Mixed Concrete at CEMEX


After water, concrete is the most widely used material in the world. Concrete is literally the foundation of our homes, communities, and cities. As such it has a critical role to play in the future success of sustainable development. Globally, twice as much concrete is produced as plastic, steel, aluminum, and wood - combined.

Perez will discuss changes the concrete industry and construction companies are implementing in order to make concrete even more sustainable.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
