Arizona Rock Products Association has partnered with the NRMCA on the national Build with Strength Campaign (BWS). The mission of the BWS efforts are to educate the building & design communities as well as policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete, and encourage its use as the building material of choice for low-to mid-rise structures. This is a materials neutral issue, so it does not conflict with any other sub set of our industry per ARPA policy.
Concrete has many advantages in terms of strength, durability, safety and ease of use for specific applications. Backed by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, Build with Strength is a coalition of architects, builders, engineers, emergency services personnel and policymakers. It will be an effort to educate these groups in order to have them choose concrete over other construction materials due to the advantages when it comes to strength, safety, versatility and long-term value, especially when it comes to residential buildings.
Meeting: 9:00AM first Wednesday of every month
