Position A is usually a nice hosted & catered breakfast or lunch, throw some pictures up on the screen and discuss how we can better serve you - Design Side or Build/Manage Side. Our product round tables can touch on all our technologies or just one - you decide. And we can usually get everyone involved AIA/CES, ASCE & LEED AP accreditation.
The general presentation focuses on foundations; water/damp proofing, building enclosure stuff, moisture/vapor proofing concrete, the most up-to-date joint/load bridging technology, and disruptive membranes. We add the sustainable/reusable form systems and even discuss synthetic fibers as a super-temperature reinforcement. Evolving towards the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructures' Envision Sustainable Professionals (ENV SP) format. It can be as generic or as proprietary as required.
Reach out today....we'll gladly come to you...no matter where you are!

In 1984 my father sent me out to spend a week with Jim McDowell and his team at the Calmat lab in Irwindale, California, and I've been a solid student of the Building Industry in Southern California and enjoyed hundreds of wonderful relationships ever since. With my father's 25 years in the Cement industry, I've tried to learn as much of the 'magic' of cement chemistry as possible. I've been exposed to some of the greatest builders over multiple generations as a product of showing up with a smile on my face and remembering what the ole man always said - "someone's always watching....so do it right the first time."
After leaving the industry and riding my bike for a few years, I was fortunate to re-enter the industry with the good folks at Hycrete. A great cast of characters, led by John de Mars and his moto "Better, Faster, Cheaper", still rings true today. Today, I do my best to make all four conventions for both the American Concrete Institute and ASTM Conventions, World of Concrete and Conn/Agg shows. I participate in all the relevant committees (and sub-committees) that are active in driving the technology in any particular area. I try to spend as much time as possible with the leaders in both consulting and research throughout the United States. I attend as many local associations as is practical. All of this allows me to listen and learn the most cutting-edge information from the coolest and smartest minds in our industry, and make demands on the manufacturers I represent to supply the most appropriate, cutting-edge and advanced products and systems as possible - and servicing those products and systems at the greatest tempo as possible.
I've worked hard to be at an elite level nationally in regards to Integral Admixtures addressing moisture/vapor concerns (for flooring, architectural coatings, and roofing) AND waterproofing admixtures. I cover all of California, Nevada and Hawaii; likewise I've been involved with some of the biggest, most successful projects over the last 15 years. If you're outside of those states, I'll find someone local that is coached up about the same as me to add value to whatever you're designing or building.
