Hello all! Several of your fellow CLF members will be talking about the Bay Area’s Low Carbon Concrete Code May 13th at 12:00pm in the SEAONC Monthly Meeting. All interested in hearing more about this project are welcome to join. Note the presentation will start after chapter announcements, and there is a fee but each company is allowed to share the zoom meeting link with their whole office.

In November 2019, Marin County adopted the world’s first building code that limits carbon emissions from concrete. The Low Carbon Concrete Code, was developed as part of the Bay Area Built Environment Embodied Emissions Project. The project was funded by a grant from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and in partnership with stakeholders from across the region.
This panel will feature the project’s main stakeholders, who will explain the history and background of the Code, discuss learnings from the (4) pilot projects currently in design or construction that are complying with the Code requirements, and what structural engineers need to know to be in compliance. Additionally, local concrete suppliers and a general contractor will provide their perspectives on the feasibility of meeting the new Code and what it could mean for the AEC industry locally and beyond. Please come with questions as there will be plenty of time for discussion.
