WA ACI Chapter Meeting

Topic: Ready Mix Plant Tour (Spokane)

The WA ACI chapter returns to Eastern Washington with our host, Brian Winkler of Wm. Winkler Co.  Brian has started an excellent traditional of having an Eastern WA chapter meeting that focuses on the students of WSU, EWU, CWU and Gonzaga.


Our April meeting is a look behind the curtain of ready mix concrete and construction aggregates manufacturing.  Most everyone is familiar with concrete when it comes down the chute, but most specifiers and end users rarely get an opportunity to see what goes into making this specialty building material for each project and often custom mix designs.

From technical product development, to taking the order, batching, dispatch, delivery and QC on the job, our meeting includes a tour of the CPM Sullivan Road concrete facility and a tour and overview of the aggregate dredging operations that provides the beginning of good concrete; good aggregates.

After dinner presentations will be made by Central Premix (CRH) team members to describe the process and details to achieve quality in design, product and delivery.

Please join us to learn more about what it takes to deliver one of the world’s most widely used construction materials, construction aggregates and ready mix concrete.
