New urban market ready mixed operations are the theme of a January 21 session, “Concrete Plants of the Future,” at the Las Vegas Convention Center—part of World of Concrete 2019 day one education activities. The two-hour program will spotlight the 400-plus yd./hour National Ready Mixed Concrete Co. Vernon plant on the edge of downtown Los Angeles; and, the 250-yd./hour Superior Concrete Materials District of Columbia plant, built in a transitioning neighborhood of the nation’s capital.
National Ready Mix and Superior Concrete management, along with Concrete Equipment Co. and Stephens Mfg. representatives, will discuss challenges of designing and permitting high volume ready mixed plants on tight urban sites. Construction materials merger & acquisition specialist Pierre Villere of Allen-Villere Partners will lead off the session with a look at demographic and market trends driving an industry-wide wave of urban residential and commercial building development.
