One of the great advantages of active involvement with the Tilt-Up Concrete Association is the opportunity for discourse across disciplines (architecture, engineering, construction, supply). This year's education program features talks bringing together these sometimes divergent interests to highlight common issues, shared responsibilities, and opportunities for increased collaboration. Additionally, series of focused talks for designers and contractors will dive deeper into topics specific to each. The education program is proudly sponsored by Dayton Superior, Construction Materials, Inc. and Seretta Construction.
