World of Concrete, the largest annual international event for concrete and masonry professionals, will take place Jan. 22-26 in Las Vegas. NPCA is excited to partner with World of Concrete to exhibit at the event (North Hall, Booth N1348) and offer two educational sessions covering residential precast construction and jointed precast concrete pavement.
Education Session: Residential Precast
Precast in Residential Construction – Enhancing Speed & Quality
Date: Monday, Jan. 22
Time: 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.
Presenter: Claude Goguen, P.E., LEED AP, National Precast Concrete Association
Audience: Contractors, manufacturers, developers, engineers
This session will examine how precast concrete structures can be used in residential construction to shorten schedules while enhancing quality and resiliency. We will discuss foundation walls to roofs and everything in between that can be made with precast concrete. We will highlight case studies to focus on details of construction. Residential contractors will learn the benefits of adding precast to their product line.
This session is eligible for 1.5 continuing education hours.

Education Session: Precast Pavement
Rapid Highway Repairs with Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement
Date: Thursday, Jan. 25
Time: 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Presenter: Shiraz Tayabji, President, Advanced Concrete Pavement Consultancy LLC
Audience: Contractors, DOT personnel, highway engineers
Organizing and managing a precast concrete pavement project to achieve a high-quality installation requires a thorough understanding of the processes required to install the selected system. That understanding must reside first with the contractor’s project managers, who are then responsible for transferring their knowledge of the system – including any unique fabrication and field installation details – to the owner/agency staff and to the contractor fabrication and installation crews.
This course will use various case studies from throughout North America to demonstrate the various uses of jointed precast concrete pavement slabs. Guidelines for design, fabrication, installation and selection criteria of pavement slab systems will be discussed.
