Sponsored by BASF Corporation, representing the Master Builders Solutions brand, Breakfast with the Experts provides attendees peer-to-peer opportunities each show morning to pose technical, or not so technical, questions to leading concrete industry experts. A panel will answer questions on new concrete construction, concrete repair and expansion joint systems. Content provided in sessions will differ based upon attendee questions.

This is an industry networking event presented in a relaxed setting. Each session’s discussion is designed to provide attendees with a unique opportunity to share concrete challenges and learn about solutions that affect production, construction, repair, and maintenance of concrete structures.

Concrete Polishing Luncheon & Forum

Presented by Concrete Surfaces magazine and the ASCC Concrete Polishing Council

Course Code: TUCPL
Date/Time: Tuesday, January 22 | 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: LVCC South Hall

Measuring the Appearance of Polished Concrete

The Concrete Polishing Council is considering a new approach to measuring the appearance of the surface of polished concrete that involves Distinctness of Image (DOI) and haze rather than 60-degree specular gloss.  At this luncheon, panelists will discuss the use of surface measurements to define the aesthetics of a polished concrete surface, what testing criterion are available, and the opportunities for standardizing expectations.  Presented by Concrete Surfaces in cooperation with the ASCC Concrete Polishing Council.

TUCPL Luncheon Fee: $95; $125 after 12/3/18 and onsite; $85 with purchase of Super Pass

Quality in Concrete Slabs Luncheon and Forum
Appropriate F-Numbers for Elevated Slabs
Presented by Concrete Construction Magazine and the American Society of Concrete Contractors

Course Code: WESOG
Date/Time: Wednesday, January 23 | 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: LVCC South Hall

Specified F-numbers for elevated slabs are too often based on what’s achievable with slabs on grade, which isn’t realistic. What can we achieve on shored slabs, unshored slabs on metal deck, post-tensioned slabs, or on cambered precast members? When can we use laser-guided screeds on elevated decks and over reinforcing steel? How do we get floor characteristics that contribute to polishing an elevated slab? What is the importance of F-numbers when the slab deflects? And what if lightweight concrete is specified? Can it be polished? How long does an elevated slab take to dry enough to install floor coverings
and how much does it curl? All of these questions and more will be addressed by experts and practitioners. Presented by Concrete Construction in cooperation with the American Society of Concrete Contractors.

WESOG Luncheon Fee: $95; $125 after 12/3/18 and onsite; $85 with purchase of Super Pass
