NPCA professional staff members traveled to Williamsburg, Va., to conduct education outreach during the International Concrete Repair Institute – Virginia Chapter 2019 Fall Symposium.
During the symposium on Sept. 12, Director of Outreach and Technical Education Claude Goguen, P.E., LEED AP, offered two presentations to an audience comprised of ICRI members from Virginia and Maryland, local designers, and repair specialists. Goguen’s sessions covered topics on the versatility of precast concrete as well as repair, restoration and protection of precast concrete.
Both presentations were well received by an audience of nearly 70 symposium attendees, who were especially interested in learning more about newer precast technologies.
While networking, Goguen connected with a Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC) vendor who offered to provide information on a mitigation strategy for microbially induced corrosion (MIC). Additionally, an engineer from The Structures Group (I wouldn’t recommend linking this just because it’ll set a precedent) requested follow up information on precast concrete monuments, and another engineer in attendance inquired about repairing double tee stems.
NPCA’s previous involvement in the 2017 Baltimore-Washington ICRI Fall Symposium cultivated the opportunity to participate again this year.
