The Cement Council of Texas represents manufacturers of portland cement in Texas. We promote cement and concrete solutions to engineers, architects, contractors, owners, community leaders, and other stakeholders in targeted markets. Additionally, we educate the public about the economic, performance, and sustainability benefits of cement and concrete. We do this through communication, education, and technical service by our highly skilled staff of industry professionals.
All are invited to a roller compacted concrete open house, hosted by the Cement Council of Texas, in Victoria on June 20, 2013:
You will see a 60 acre site being constructed with RCC pavement, using a pug mill for mixing, a high-density asphalt paver for placement, and vibratory rollers for compaction. This is a highly cost effective and fast method of concrete pavement construction, and can be less expensive than constructing road or facility pavements from equivalently designed asphalt and base course. It certainly is more durable, with less maintenance. It can be designed to outlast the oil/gas exploration truck loads that are tearing up TxDOT FM roads, county roads, and city streets. Don't miss this opportunity to make your tax or corporate dollars go further.
The Cement Council of Texas has announced that its third RCC Pavement Design and Construction Symposium will be held on November 20-21, 2013 at the Sheraton DFW Airport in Irving, Texas.
The conference will feature international experts on RCC. They will provide engineering and construction professionals with education in the basic fundamentals of RCC pavements, and with emerging technologies that can make RCC even more cost-effective. The conference agenda is designed for professionals throughout the U.S., and its location near DFW Airport, will simplify transportation options.
Also, contractors, equipment/material suppliers, and engineering firms can highlight their products and expertise through several sponsorship opportunities.
