Pavillion for Concrete Building Products the Biggest Ever
For the 19th consecutive year, the Portland Cement Association (PCA) will host the “Concrete Pavillion” at the International Builders’ Show, a one-stop shopping venue for show attendees who want information on a wide range of concrete products for residential applications.
At 12,900 square feet, this year’s pavilion will be the largest in the show’s history.
PCA will be joined by 32 partners at the pavilion representing complete concrete systems such as insulating concrete forms (ICFs), removable forms, masonry products, retaining walls, exterior veneers, post-tensioning, AAC, flatwork and accessories.
Complete information will be available from the PCA at Booth W5461. New at the association’s booth this year will be an easy-to-use touch-screen kiosk that demonstrates how insulated concrete homes can save energy and reduce utility bills compared to other construction methods, according to different home styles, locations and wall styles.
The PCA Booth will also have information on the New American Home® 2007, which for the fourth consecutive year features a structural concrete wall system.
Situated in a historic district of downtown Orlando, the three-story home utilizes precast exterior walls constructed with T-Mass technology and supplied by Standard Precast. The home also features structural hollow-core precast flooring planks provided by Gate Concrete Products.
Other concrete products included in the home include Portland cement stucco containing Essroc Cement's pollution-fighting Millennium Cement, Hardiplank fiber-cement siding, concrete pavers from Flagstone Pavers and concrete masonry retaining walls with brick veneer. Both PCA and the Precast-Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) are project sponsors.
NAHB will be providing bus tours to The New American Home once an hour during the show. Tour information is available at the PCA Booth or in the Show Home kiosk in the registration area of the Orange County Convention Center.
