IBC Embraces Mass Timber for Model Building Codes

In a stunning, but not too surprising, blow to those of us in the concrete industry, last December the International Code Council (ICC) approved 14 of the 17 tall mass timber code change proposals. The approvals pave the way for the mass timber code change proposals to be included in the 2021 International Building Code (IBC).

Concrete Pumping Association of Canada Holds First Meetings Following Merger

At World of Concrete 2019, the Concrete Pumping Association of Canada first announced their intentions to merge with the American Concrete Pumping Association and operate as an ACPA chapter while retaining its CPAC name. The merger will allow CPAC to benefit from ACPA’s resources developed over the past 45 years while combining its own resources into a unified organization.

The initial meeting at WOC was met with positive feedback, according to Daryl Dika, CPAC co-founder and board member and stakeholder with Reach Construction Services.

“Born to Pump” Cocktail Party

While the 1980s rock band Quiet Riot declared they were “born to rock,” we like to say our concrete pumpers are “born to pump.” Thus, “Born to Pump” was the motto for ACPA’s annual cocktail party kicking off World of Concrete. With a rollicking rock-and-roll theme, the party was held Tuesday, January 22 at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel.
