Cement Council of Texas
1820 Harwood Court
Hurst, TX 76054
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.
The Cement Council of Texas is presenting regional seminars on proper design and construction techniques for soil/base stabilization with cement and roller compacted concrete (RCC) pavements. These full-day events are scheduled as follows:
The seminars will bring essential design and construction information to public agencies, consulting engineers, construction professionals, and owners who are interested in building low cost/low maintenance pavements.
The soil stabilization portion will include training on full-depth reclamation of existing asphalt pavements--saving 25-50% cost (and time) compared to removal/replacement. Additionally, subgrade stabilization (for both granular soils and clays) and cement-treated base will be covered, showing how cement subgrade and base stabilization can reduce maintenance, lower initial cost, and utilize local materials.
The RCC pavement section will introduce this type of rigid pavement to decision-makers, and discuss what types of projects--from industrial pavements to city streets--are best suited to this fast-emerging technology. Attendees will learn design methods, specification, standard development, and production/construction methods. Actual case studies of public roads and private developments will illustrate how RCC can save money and improve pavement performance.
Seminar instructors will draw on their decades of experience in these technologies.
Sign up now for these low-cost seminars.
