CSDA releases new specifier resourcesPublished 10/7, 2017 at 14:39
In the US the Concrete Sawing and Drilling Association has released two resource documents the CSDA 2017 Resource Guide and CSDA 2017 Membership Directory which are available to download from the CSDA website www.csda.org.
These are aimed at helping architects, engineers, general contractors, government officials and anyone else involved with the specifying of concrete cutting, polishing, ground penetrating radar imaging and selective demolition work.
The CSDA 2017 Resource Guide contains 45 industry documents including standards, specifications, tolerances and best practices to help specifiers better understand the wide range of capabilities and services that CSDA contractor members possess, and provide solutions by using diamond cutting tools on future projects.
This latest iteration of the CSDA Resource Guide includes the addition of seven new documents, along with revisions to several more previously published. Each one has been written, reviewed and approved by experts in the field and all are subject to regular updates by the association’s Standards and Specifications Committee.
“The systems employed by CSDA contractors can provide significant cost advantages over conventional removal and inspection methods, yet many specifiers are unaware of these techniques and capabilities,” said CSDA executive director Patrick O’Brien. “Whether it is a major infrastructure project, such as a power plant or dam renovation, or a highway or airport surface repair job, cutting, polishing, imaging or selectively demolishing concrete can be much more cost effective than other methods.”
To further assist specifiers in finding specialist contractors, the CSDA 2017 Membership Directory contains a listing of all North American and overseas members from 21 different countries. There are also listings of those member companies that manufacturer or distribute tools and equipment associated with concrete cutting, polishing, GPR imaging and selective demolition.
The directory complements CSDA’s other online member search features, including an interactive map and search boxes, which can be found on the CSDA website.
