Today, the on-site, DIY approach to wood concrete forming fabrication is rapidly giving way to the precision, convenience, and speed of ready-made, turnkey systems. Read the following 10 reasons why contractors for structural forming, road and bridge, and water treatment projects nationwide are teaming up with UFP for their forming needs.
Concrete is the most commonly used man-made material and comes second only to water as the most widely used substance on earth. It can be found in nearly every building project, from structural components to sidewalks and parking lots. As populations continue to grow and the building sector continues to experience exponential growth, the concrete industry is taking the lead in driving initiatives toward a sustainable future through transparency and innovative concrete solutions.
By better understanding concepts and terminology relevant to a sustainable future; assessing LEED v4, ASHRAE 189.1, and the International Green Construction Code; learning how to specify concrete for LEEDv4; and discovering innovative concrete technologies and products, those in the AEC industry will be better positioned to achieve carbon emissions reduction goals and contribute to the creation of a more sustainable built environment.
