The course will be held October 14 through 16 at ACPA’s Rosemont, Ill.-headquarters, located at 9450 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Rosemont, Illinois. This special training event will be held in the 3rd floor conference room.

The curriculum is well suited for contractors; airport owners and owners’ representatives; consultants/engineers; inspectors; military engineers; Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) personnel, and others with an interest in designing, constructing, and maintaining quality concrete pavements for commercial airports and military airfield applications.

Leading experts from the American Concrete Pavement Association, the Federal Aviation Administration, and other companies in the airport construction community will present information and lead open discussions.

Program overview
In addition to providing comprehensive information about airport pavement design and construction, it will also cover various specifications (i.e., P-501, Unified Facilities Guide Specifications, etc.); advisory circulars; engineering briefs; and other resources.

Just a few of the topic areas that will be covered in the workshop include foundation support, jointing, concrete mixtures, stockpiling, concrete plant management, acceptance criteria, smoothness, and much more.
