Program Overview:

Lunch Program (1 PDH): The RFI Epidemic: Potential Impacts and Remedies

A gap typically exists between drawings and specifications as developed and provided by the design engineer, technical reference documents developed by organizations such as the American Concrete Institute (ACI), field quality control processes recommended by the engineer and implemented by the owner through a testing agency, and construction processes and practices as performed by a contractor.  By focusing on practical examples this presentation will provide examples on how the above-noted gap can be closed by collaborative participation of all parties involved, in order to achieve high quality, long-lasting concrete structures.
