On February 5th, Shea Concrete Products of Amesbury, MA hosted its 11th Technical Engineering Seminar within the training room of their new precast concrete headquarters on Haverhill Road for the second of their 2020 Technical Engineering Seminar Series.
Drawing a crowd of seventy (70) construction, engineering, and precast professionals, Shea Concrete’s February seminar offered a full-day of technical learning from a wide range of industry-leading speakers.
Shea Concrete also offered guests a tour of their precast concrete manufacturing facility and headquarters. The new headquarters, which opened in January 2018, was designed with LEED-certification in-mind by utilizing a wide range of sustainable materials and practices, including a roof-mounted solar panel array, sustainable precast concrete construction, brownfield and wastewater considerations, and steps to minimize construction waste throughout the construction process.
“The seminar was well attended and informative. Shea Concrete’s facility is impressive and clearly growing!” said Jack Kareckas, Construction Inspector for CMA Engineers, Inc. “Thanks again for hosting the event and generously providing food and support.”
Attendees to the seminar were also approved to earn up to 16 Professional Credit Hours, which are helpful for Professional Engineers to keep up with continuing education requirements.
“3.0 System Inspector (SI) & 2.0 Soil Evaluator (SE) Training Contact Hours (TCH’s)” were approved for all attendees by the Massachusetts Title 5 Onsite Advisory Committee, on behalf of NEIWPCC. Along with the 5.0-TCHs, this seminar was also approved for 6.0-Credit Hours by the NHDES Subsurface Systems Bureau for On-Site/Septic Designers/Installers and 5-Professional Development Hours (PDHs).
Because this seminar was offered at no cost to attendees, Shea Concrete prides the seminar for its big return-on-investment for those in attendance.
"For me, it's a pleasure to participate in Shea Concrete Products Technical Engineering Seminars,” said Brian Barry, Technical Service Engineer for LafargeHolcim. “It's been a huge success in providing educational programs and an integral part of professional development with the added benefit of providing a collaborative environment to share ideas and concerns on topics related to the precast concrete industry."
Shea Concrete Products would like to thank all speakers and attendees for making the seminar a success, and looks forward to hosting its next seminar on 3/18/2020!
