The mission of the Build with Strength campaign is to educate the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete and encourage its use as the building material of choice for low- to mid-rise structures. No other material can replicate concrete’s advantages in terms of strength, durability, safety and ease of use.
Pave Ahead is an educational campaign and website designed to assist the industry, policy makers and other stakeholders when making decisions about how to pave with safety, reliability, sustainability and cost in mind. Paveahead.com also provides a portal to NRMCA’s no-fee “pavement design center.” Stressing logistics and efficiency, the design center employs an “assistance team” to help users develop project pavement designs, select materials, locate contractors, and consult with industry specialists. Additionally, paveahead.com offers a variety of resources, articles, and testimonies relating to concrete, and other ready mix produced products, as roadway/paving construction materials.
