October 8, 1:00p ET APG + MIT Urban Planning + Sustainability Series #1: Concrete’s Sustainable Impact (1LU|HSW)

The first of four special sessions in partnership with the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub and Portland Cement Association (PCA) exploring the multifaceted benefits of concrete and masonry construction. 

Presented by a cross-disciplinary team of materials scientists, infrastructure experts, engineers and economists, these courses will explore how concrete and masonry contribute to superior sustainability, help to minimize climate impacts due to the urban heat island effect, deliver resiliency in the face of natural and man-made disaster, and maximize energy efficiency.

Join us for these once-a-month Special Sessions for expert insights on putting concrete and masonry to work in elevating design, enhancing performance and positively impacting the entire built environment
