The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) is proud to announce that Ted Sofis (Sofis Company Inc) has been named an ASA Qualified Shotcrete Contractor.
ASA’s program recognizes shotcrete contractors who have shown by their company resources and past performance, a proven commitment to quality shotcrete placement. Quality, durable shotcrete placement on a consistent basis is key to extending the adoption of shotcrete in the wide variety of concrete structures where shotcrete is the most efficient, sustainable and cost-effective method of concrete placement.
The ASA Contractor Qualification program requires a significant time commitment to attend the ASA Contractor Education seminar as well as fully documenting shotcrete-related business. ASA has shotcrete experts (contractors, engineers, suppliers, and educators) who review and verify applicant submittals of past successful work and aspects of shotcrete critical to quality placement. The Contractor Qualification committee reviews the shotcrete team, including contractor management, ACI-certified nozzleman, crew experience, proper equipment, and knowledge and ability to consistently place quality shotcrete.
ASA qualification is active for five years. ASA Qualified Shotcrete Contractors must heed ASA’s Code of Conduct in their shotcrete work:
"As an ASA Qualified Shotcrete Contractor, we agree to ongoing compliance with the requirements and standards set forth in the ASA Shotcrete Contractor Qualification Program Description. We will not knowingly or purposefully violate any project specifications or requirements. We agree to maintain required insurance coverage, staff our projects with trained and certified personnel, and strive to produce a high-quality product in a safe and professional manner."
