Disaster resistent concrete construction – US Supply Chain Education

Mature supply chains think disaster resistance as well

The CementTrust site focuses on assisting under-developed countries to realize the importance of a strong concrete supply chain.  Properly established, a solid supply system will provide the foundation of secure construction, even in disaster prone areas.

.

Part of a successful supply system is the continuing improvement and networking that naturally grows among the various players of the chain.  The US supply chain has been offering educational opportunities for many years and this year is no different. One of these educational events is focusing on disaster resistance as a part of standard construction best-practices.

The following is the topic of one of the seminars in an upcoming training event sponsored by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association.

Understand the importance of incorporating FORTIFIED building programs into construction techniques to provide an optimum level of protection against a variety of natural hazards specific to your region.

Even within a very mature supply system the concern is to fortify concrete production programs so that they are a better protection against disaster. This type of constant improvement can also become a part of new supply chains as well. It takes time and determination to create a value chain that will naturally improves on its own accord. The US concrete chain has been developing for nearly 100-years.

These training seminars and this specific topic is a testament to the value of building a decentralized supply system for every developing country of the world. The stakes are too high to not get started and eventually receive the benefit of stronger infrastructure.

The vision of a world full of self-sustaining supply systems is not that hard to see within the next 100 years. Can you help make this dream come true for the poorest among us?
