The Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) is inviting project submissions to be considered for a new Top 10 list highlighting the “Most Recycled Concrete Content” on a project.
The list, which already has one entry, was initiated in response to the market's interest in sustainable solutions. “The use of Tilt-Up concrete goes a long way in achieving sustainability, thanks in large part to its durability,” said Jim Baty, TCA's technical director. “Structures built with concrete tend to last two to three times longer than buildings constructed with other common building materials. In addition, the same qualities that make concrete a viable green material, such as thermal mass and reflectivity, also help make concrete structures sustainable by providing constant energy efficiency throughout the building's life cycle.”
Those interested in their project being considered for the TCA's Top 10 list highlighting the “Most Recycled Concrete Content” on a project should contact Baty at email@example.com or call the Association at 319-895-6911.
