National Ready Mix Concrete Association
Build With Strength
The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) is the leading industry advocate for the concrete industry. NRMCA guides its members to the highest standard, challenging them to become thought leaders in innovation, advance their business operations, develop their workforce, and emphasize the critical role concrete plays in our daily lives.
Build With Strength is an initiative of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association to educate the design and building community, as well as policymakers, on the benefits and proper use of concrete for building construction. Through innovation and collaboration, we are making buildings more disaster-resilient and sustainable one pour at a time.
We recommend concrete and insulating concrete forms (ICFs) over other construction materials because of their advantages when it comes to resilience, sustainability, affordability, ease of use, and innovation. ICFs are quickly becoming a fundamental building technique for multi-family, residential, school, and commercial buildings.
Innovations in concrete and ICFs will help us meet emission reduction goals while showcasing affordable housing that offers world-class energy performance and can withstand even nature’s most extreme events.
