Created by The Concrete Network, the site provides 45 reports on a lofty variety of topics including estimating strategies, jobsite management, trends in concrete, field supervision, and improving profitability. All the reports are free for visitors to download, print, and share.

According to Dan Tate, The Concrete Network’s director of new products, the five most popular and most frequently downloaded reports include the following titles:

  •     Understanding Profit
  •     Estimating Requires Focus in Five Areas
  •     Be Right on the Big Stuff – Job Costing
  •     Investing in Your Future – Establishing a Marketing Budget
  •     Building Relationships that Increase Profits

Many of the website’s reports are authored by well-respected industry leaders, including Bob Harris, president of the Decorative Concrete Institute; Alan Sparkman, executive director of the Tennessee Concrete Association; Chris Sullivan, national technical director and sales manager for QC Construction Products; J. Chris Cooper, president of Orgpax Publications on organizational leadership; and Charles Vander Kooi, president of Vander Kooi and Associates and a construction industry consultant and speaker. can give concrete contractors insight from a vantage point or two higher than where they stand now on their climb to running a successful business.
