Architectural Shotcrete – Creativity, Efficiency, Sustainability and Economy in Concrete

Date & Time: Thursday May 19, 2022
9:45 am
Duration: 50 minutes
Location: Phoenix Room B
Registration: $50 + tax

This seminar will give the owner, architect, engineer, project specifier, field inspector, and general contractors an overview on how shotcrete can allow flexibility and creativity in a variety of architectural and structural concrete applications. Shotcrete inherently has all the durability of concrete and allows efficient construction of curved or complex shapes that are difficult and costly to produce with traditional concrete forming and casting methods. The session will provide a basic overview of the shotcrete process, cover the design, specifying and detailing considerations for shotcrete placement of architectural and structural applications. We will further explain how the shotcrete process has significant sustainability benefits when compared to traditional form-and-pour concrete placement. We will also discuss achieving quality and durability of shotcrete addressing field inspection, specific placement techniques, nozzleman certifications, and contractor qualifications. We will wrap up with a discussion of ASA programs for shotcrete nozzlemen, inspectors, and contractor as well as providing a listing of appropriate references and resources on the creative use of shotcrete.
