Morning sessions:
Economy and Constructibility in Concrete Construction - John Turner, CSP, PE (1.5 hours)
Smart design choices and leveling of designs rather than strictly minimizing material quantities can lead to faster, more efficient projects with fewer CA issues at a lower cost to an owner.  Constructability is key to getting the right design built at the right price. This discussion is geared toward finding ways to avoid RFIs, redesign, and exceptions found during observation or special inspection. CRSI and its members provide a series of articles for ACI's Concrete International magazine.  This presentation uses these and other resources to highlight frequent design and construction issues.

Preconstruction, BIM, and Getting The Most Out of a Supplier - Dennis Fontenot from CMC - Commercial Metals (1 hour)
Involving reinforcement detailers, contractors, and suppliers early in design informs the design for better constructability.  Constructability is key to getting the right design built at the right price. This discussion is geared toward finding ways to avoid RFIs, redesign, and exceptions found during observation or special inspection.

Lunch Session:
Detailing Do's and Don'ts - Joseph P. Jolly, PE (1 hour)
Construction documents can hold surprises in hidden ways for rebar detailers and contractors.  Elevation and dimension busts, missing information, and references to other documents all create problems that have to be resolved before construction can started or completed. Mr. Jolly is a structural engineer and rebar detailer with many years of experience in both industries and he brings his experience to this interesting presentation.
