ASA On-Site Presentations
 ASA offers complimentary informational presentations to host organizations with five or more architects, engineers, or specifiers in attendance. This service is also a benefit available to ASA Corporate and Sustaining Corporate Members.
The shotcrete process offers numerous quality, efficiency, and sustainability advantages, but proper knowledge of the process is critical to the creation of a quality specification and for the success of any specifier/owner employing the process. Maintaining a high level of quality for concrete placed via the shotcrete method is ASA’s primary concern and we have found this type of on-site presentation to be an excellent tool for all involved. Typically these are 60-minute presentations, including Q&A, but can be tailored to accommodate your needs.
Contact ASA staff at or 248.848.3780 to arrange for an on-site informational presentation tailored for your group’s needs.
