World of Concrete 2008 Images

Its been a couple of weeks since World of Concrete, but posting pictures later is better than never. This is the second year I’ve gone to the World of Concrete. 2007 seemed to be the year of concrete counter tops. This year had more focus on sustainability and the “greener” aspects of concrete.

One of the coolest products I saw there was the building block from Sustainable Wall Systems (SWS). The block is a composite of concrete and recycled polystyrene with a OSB board attached to one side. Walls made from this material have a R-49 rating.

I love how massive some of the concrete equipment can be.
