General Information

Strategic Development Council Technology Forum #36

SDC Technology Forum #36 will take advantage of its Fall 2014 location in San Francisco to feature continuing concrete industry activities related to concrete repair. Other presentations scheduled for Thursday and Friday will include reporting on industry critical technologies, and a number of Technology Showcases, innovative and interesting technologies that have the potential to improve and advance the concrete industry.

Technology Showcases will include presentations by Solidia Technologies and Greencraft LLC.

On Thursday morning, September 4, we have scheduled a tour of concrete structures on Alcatraz Island to review the concrete restoration work that has been done under the auspices of the Concrete Preservation Institute. The tour will be led by Dr. Tanya Komas, Executive Director of the Concrete Preservation Institute and Professor at Cal State, Chico. Dr. Komas will discuss state-of-the-art technologies and techniques that are currently being used in the preservation and restoration of concrete structures. The island provides a particularly interesting site for research and testing due to the variety of weather conditions experienced at different sites on the island. Please see the Tour page for more information and for a link to a very interesting article, titled: “Restoring the Rock.”

For more information on the breakout sessions & technology showcases, see the agenda.

It is more important than ever that you make your hotel reservations and register for this event as soon as possible, as SDC must make ground and ferry transportation arrangements and purchase tickets for the tour very far in advance to ensure the date and times that we need, and we cannot do this unless we know how many people to expect. Please help us to make this a great experience for all involved by registering early. Also, because it is peak season, the hotel is very likely to sell out over our dates and we have a limited room block, so please make your hotel reservations as soon as possible.

Hotel reservations at the Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf, can be made through the SDC website or by calling the hotel directly at 415-563-1234 or toll free at 888-421-1442. You must mention the group name of ACI-SDC Technology Forum to receive the negotiated rate. Due to the fact that this is peak season in San Francisco, availability is very limited and we were unable to negotiate an extension of our discounted rate for days outside of our block which is September 3-5, 2014.

If you wish to stay at the venue for dates that are outside of these dates, you will need to call the hotel to make your reservations. Our on-line reservations link will only allow reservations for dates that fall within the group room block.
