BUILD WITH STRENGTH
Build With Strength is a coalition of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association. Its mission is to educate the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete, and encourage its use as the building material of choice for low- to mid-rise structures. No other material can replicate concrete’s advantages in terms of strength, durability, safety and ease of use.
In mid-2018, the MCC Board of Directors approved the formation of a Build With Strength Committee within MCC. The purpose of the committee is to act as a bull-horn to advance the mission of the national Build With Strength campaign in Minnesota.
The Co-Chairs of the Build With Strength Committee are John Lee (Cemstone) and Chad Regnier (Concrete Inc.). For information on how you can participate in the Build with Strength Committee, please contact John, Chad, or MCC’s Administrator, Priscilla Conway.
