Concrete Home Building Council Cements Two New Relationships
Joining six other associations for the concrete industry, the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) and the Tile Roofing Institute (TRI) have become members of NAHB’s Concrete Home Building Council (CHBC).
“These two associations represent the diversity and importance of cement-based products in residential construction,” said Michael H. Weber, president of the CHBC. “From sidewalks and driveways to roof tiles and siding, home building has depended upon concrete. More cement-based products are being used in residential construction than ever before and the Concrete Home Building Council’s mission is strengthened as we build more relationships.”
In addition to the traditional uses of concrete, Weber noted that over 16% of all single-family detached, above-grade walls incorporate a concrete wall system.
The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute represents the segmental concrete pavement industry and focuses on educating contractors nationwide. The Tile Roofing Institute was formed to serve the interests of the nation’s concrete and clay tile industry.
The two join the following as CHBC association partners: Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Products Association, Concrete Foundations Association/Concrete Homes Council, Insulating Concrete Forms Association, National Concrete Masonry Association, Precast Prestressed Concrete Institute and the Portland Cement Association.
The Concrete Home Building Council was formed in January 2004 as NAHB’s cement-based building products resource.
CHBC’s Concrete Technologies Tour, will take place June 26-28 in Kansas City, Mo.
