The NRMCA Concrete Design Center was created to help owners, developers, architects, and engineers understand the benefits of building with concrete. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the advantages that concrete can bring to any given project. It can also help guide and advise on choosing concrete solutions that best fit an individual project’s needs.

NRMCA utilizes a team of professional design experts to evaluate and assist with a submitted project, including:

  • Structural and architectural design
  • Cost estimating
  • Life cycle assessment
  • Code review
  • Sustainability and green building standards

A comprehensive document that includes best recommendations for the project is produced at the end of the review. Of course, the content depends on the project itself. As an example, a multi-family residential recommendation may include construction cost estimates, estimated operating income and expenses, and a side-by-side comparison for wood or steel and concrete construction. The final document will include quantifiable, empirical data that shows how building with concrete is both cost competitive and sustainable.

Best of all? This is a FREE service and offers Design Assistance Programs (DAP) for both building and paving projects.
