Every year, pervious concrete gets bigger at World of Concrete, and I'm excited for what's in store for 2013!
First, there will be educational sessions. Monday starts with an "Introduction to Pervious Concrete Pavement Construction" (MO48) where Dr. Brown and I will give an exciting overview of pervious concrete including construction, proportioning, testing, site design, and launching a contracting business in the pervious market. On Tuesday (TUPCW) the Tenessee Concrete Association will offer the pervious concrete contractor certification examination. Wednesday keeps the excitement rolling with Dr. Kevern's talk "10 Things Contractors Need to Know for Successful Pervious Concrete" (WE133).
Along the way, there will be hands-on training for contractors that want to get a real feel for how to place pervious concrete. Sessions are offered Tuesday through Thursday at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:30 pm, and on Friday at 10:30 am. During these sessions, attendess will work with instructors to learn how to place pervious concrete, and use the appropriate tools and equipment. A performance evaluation will be offered to those seeking NRMCA Installer certification, and this will qualify as one of three required projects necessary for that certification.
Come see how to do it right and wrong! At 'Pervious Concrete Live!' visitors can see what is new in the market for pervious concrete tools and equipment, and see demonstrations of maintenance equipment, screeds, and test procedures. Contractors can walk the slabs of pervious concrete to see how it's done right, and how not to place it.
