PAVE AHEAD

The Pave Ahead Design Assistance Center is a free service offered by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association which allows an owner, designer, or specifier to work with an Assistance Team to develop a pavement design (including jointing plans), select materials, locate contractors, conduct lifecycle cost analysis, and consult with industry specialists. The program can offer a different, newer way of looking at pavement design and gives the user information and the ability to make an educated decision regarding their pavement project. Click on the link below to begin using the Design Center, or speak with a B & B representative for more information.

BUILD WITH STRENGTH

Build With Strength is a coalition of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association providing information and education to the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete. The Build With Strength website (link above) includes design solutions, software guides, technical guidelines and educational training. It also includes access to a free concrete project design assistance program (DAP). This program can assist you in choosing the right concrete solution for a wide variety of projects, from multi-family residential/mixed use to industrial and health care facilities. To get started working with a team of expert engineers and architects, visit the link below, or speak with a B & B representative for more information.
