Concrete-Free Slab on Grade Foundations – Josh Salinger
October 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 7:10 pm
Concrete-Free Slab on Grade Foundations
Concrete is the worlds second most used material behind water and this material alone accounts for almost 8% of the entire world’s GHG emissions. This is even before considering the impacts the raw materials such as sand have to ecosystems and even crime (!) in certain parts of the world. There are ample reasons to reduce the amount of concrete used in our buildings to reduce the impact the built environment has on climate change. Join Josh as he explains how to design and construct a high performance floating plywood slab on grade assembly successfully. This presentation will explain the science behind why this works, how it meets code and practical methods of incorporating this into your projects.
