MOUNT VERNON, IOWA (July 20, 2005) -- Builders and inspectors in Western Pennsylvania are invited to the Concrete Foundations Association’s (CFA) Regional Conference on Friday, September 16, at the Embassy Suites Hotel Pittsburgh International Airport in Coraopolis, PA.
The regional conference, hosted by the CFA local chapter Western Pennsylvania Concrete Foundations Association, is a daylong event that offers seminars on such topics as the National Home Builders Assocation’s Cast-In-Place Concrete Foundations course and how cold weather influences residential construction. The National Home Builders Association’s course covers the logistics of cast-in-place concrete foundation construction with references to design standards and code requirements. It also provides proper excavation techniques, safety considerations, and water management procedures.
“The event covers topics regularly presented on a national scope but at a local level,” states Ed Sauter, executive director of CFA. “Builders and inspectors will come away with a better understanding of the issues and forces affecting cast-in-place foundations.”
CEU credits are available for attending. Contact the Concrete Foundations Association at 319-895-6940 for registration information, or visit www.cfawalls.org to register online.
