Virtual Concrete Products Plant Tour (1LU|HSW)

March 4, 2021 | 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Concrete masonry is one of the oldest building materials known to man, and one with humble manufacturing origins. While low-tech block manufacturing still takes place around the world, today’s modern plants are capable of staggering output with unrivaled precision, flexibility and speed.

Join us for a virtual tour of one of Oldcastle’s state-of-the-art block plants as we review the quality control practices and procedures of manufactured concrete products and follow the steps from the arrival of the aggregates, to the initial mixing stages and through the production process.

The tour will address the proper manufacturing techniques needed to meet the required fire resistance, energy efficiencies and overall sustainable qualities of CMUs – helping you know exactly what goes into the products that you’re specifying for your next high-performance project.
