p>Volunteer members of the American Society of Concrete Contractors’ Decorative Concrete Council traveled to the Rocky Mountains to place and finish a decorative concrete slab for the Ken Caryl Veterans Monument, outside Denver. The monument is being built to commemorate veterans as well as those on active duty and in the reserves in all U.S. Armed Forces branches.

Chris Sullivan of ChemSystems, Inc., Littleton, Colo., was the project manager for the concrete installation. He worked with local community leaders to plan a simple representation of decorative concrete. Local ASCC and DCC members donated the equivalent of $50,000-plus in time, labor and materials. Volunteers formed and placed 1,000 square feet of textured concrete and colored exposed bands. The finish is a combination of a light tan colored concrete with two slightly darker bands running through the slab in a “cross” design.
