Integrally Troweled Cure & Polish Concrete

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

This program addresses the need to properly cure and finish concrete. Discusses the current ACI recommendations and the new technology that allows dramatic time savings while Increasing quality of the finished product. Education in advanced concrete technology with the use of the power trowel alone to create a unique architectural finished product. Education in advanced methods to expose aggregate and ultra high gloss are also shown. This unique system also eliminates moisture loss which reduces cracking and seals the surface so effectively there is no additional need for moisture mitigation

Elevator Technology where it`s been, where it`s going

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

With urbanization on the rise, the vertical transportation industry is challenged more than ever to provide eco‐efficient, cost‐saving, and space‐saving solutions. This session will cover the history of elevator technology and compare conventional applications with today's technological advancements, enabling attendees to critique the risks and disadvantages of dated technology and identify the advantages of newer technology. In particular, attendees will learn about both recent developments and future trends concerning machine‐room‐less (MRL) elevators. The presentation will address design benefits, installation and ownership costs, and LEED contributions.Learning Objectives: - ANALYZE THE RISKS AND DRAWBACKS ASSOCIATED WITH TRADITIONAL ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY - EXPLAIN THE DEVELOPMENT AND FUNCTIONALITY OF MRL ELEVATORS - EVALUATE THE COST AND SPACE SAVINGS ASSOCIATED WITH MRL ELEVATORS ALONG WITH THEIR ADVANTAGES FOR SUSTAINABILITY - IDENTIFY THE FUTURE TRENDS IN ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY
