Self Consolidating Concrete and Tilt-Up

Presenter: Jeremy Minnillo - Preferred Materials, Inc.
Date and time: Saturday, September 30 - 9:00a to 10:00a

PMI has developed patented self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixtures known as PlaceReady and FormReady for use in tilt-up construction. These mix designs provide unique solutions to age old tilt-up issues. Mixes are usually custom designed to meet the specific needs of the project.

This seminar will be focusing on the New Port Ritchey Elementary School Project, a challenging project that required early tilting strength, architectural brick fascia on portions of the panels, and a tight time table, as well as a contractor who had never used PlaceReady. 

Many contractors have valid concerns about using a new product, this seminar will discuss how a ready mix supplier can produce SCC concrete consistently, accurately, and successfully. SCC has been used globally for over 20 years with great success on some of the world's most iconic and identifiable projects.

There is no reason why SCC cannot be used on your next project.

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.
