Utah Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (URMCA), a trusted resource for concrete technology in all construction segments and applications and a chapter of the National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association, has announced that as of August 1st, members of the former Utah Chapter ACPA (UCACPA) will be invited to join the URMCA team as part of the newly formed Concrete Paving Committee. This committee will leverage the resources and connections of the Pave Ahead Program.
Supported by National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) and Portland Cement Association (PCA), it will continue to promote concrete pavement for highways, parking lots, city streets, and roads. The once separate efforts of these two organizations will now be strengthened to give more focused and unified support to association partners, including UDOT, AGC, ABC, ACI, and others.
“We welcome the members from the UCACPA who accept our invitation to join the URMCA,” says Cody Preston of Geneva Rock Products and chair of the Concrete Paving Committee. “Our joint promotional efforts will amplify our message of the importance of Paving Ahead and Building with Strength as we build – horizontally and vertically – for Utah’s future. Likewise, we have begun planning for our Annual Concrete Pavement Workshop which will be held in January 2021. Our combined efforts will ensure another educational, engaging, and motivating workshop.”
“Utah, already ranked No. 1 in terms of states with the best infrastructure, will surely benefit from the consolidated efforts of the Concrete Paving Committee,” says Scott Reynolds, COO Altaview Concrete, Chairman, NRMCA. “That Utah leads the nation in both building and growth and that we lead the country when it comes to the least amount of damage to interstates and bridges, are a few of the reasons why Utah is such a great place to live.”
