Summer Meeting 2018 at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado!

We invite you to attend the ADSC Summer Meeting the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, July 9-12, 2018. Our committees continue to make strides in the development of standards and specifications. This helps all of us help shape the leading edge of technology, and in a significant way helps improve opportunities for each and every member. And remember, there is no better educational tool than networking and renewing friendships at an ADSC venue. Old friendships are rekindled, and new ones developed. Sharing the commonality of our professional and personal lives is one of the things that makes the ADSC a truly unique organization.

We look forward seeing you this summer in the heart of the magnificent Rockies.

With over 300 days of sunshine each year, outdoor recreation opportunities are everywhere you look. Extensive parks and open spaces with trails that wind through magnificent rock formations and shady mountain forests – perfect for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Or tackle the rapids of the Arkansas on a river rafting tour that winds through the Royal Gorge.

Fishing, camping, golfing and rock climbing are also favorites in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region.

Colorado Springs is known for its rich and diverse cultural activities.

Wednesday, July 11  

8:30am-9:15am       Education Session: Current Concrete Issues in Foundation Construction and Technical Tools to Support Your Work

Contractors face daily challenges on jobsites about one of the most basic materials on the planet – concrete.  Whether the issue is a new admixture or a problem with a cold joint, being even slightly out of the loop with current technological developments and research can cause costly delays and jobsite disputes, even if a subcontractor is responsible for concrete placement.  Three of the most pertinent concrete issues will be presented.  Each issue will include basic technical information, ways to avoid problems, and technical resources for support. Presented by Peggy Hagerty Duffy, P.E., D. GE, ADSC Technical Advisor

9:30am-11:00am       Protection and Responsibilities for Contractors and Subcontractors with Regard to Safe Working Platforms

With the recent emphasis on safe working platforms on construction sites, it is critical that foundation contractors are able to protect themselves with contract language that puts the responsibility for providing the platform where it belongs.  Rick Kalson will cover suggested contract language and liability pitfalls.  It’s also crucial that contractors understand how safe bearing conditions are calculated, whether it’s their responsibility or not. Rick Marshall will give an overview of methods and procedures currently adopted by the UK Federated Piling Specialists’ Rig Track Pressure Calculation Tool. Presented by Rick Kalson and Rick Marshall 

Product Presentations   12:00pm-1:30pm

The Associates Committee, to further service our contractor members, would like to invite you to attend the Lunch & Learn Product Presentations.  Each of the four presentations will conclude with a raffle for contractor members in attendance.

NETWORKING, SOCIAL EVENTS AND OTHER POINTS OF INTEREST

Monday, July 9

ADSC Golf Tournament    Shotgun start at 8:00am – The Broadmoor Golf Club: The West Course

Get ready for rolling fairways, multi-level greens, and demanding hazards at the stunning yet formidable West Course. At 6,800 feet, this 18-hole course has more doglegs and steeply-angled greens than the East Course, and offers breathtaking views of both the mountains and Colorado Springs. The West Course plays tighter off the tee, with more heavily tree-lined holes than the East Course, and gives players an array of spectacular approach shots. Don’t let the stunning mountain views distract you; the West Course may look like a postcard, but it offers a very challenging and rewarding round of golf.

Club rentals are an additional $74.00 plus tax and payment to be made at the pro shop. Be sure to indicate if you require clubs on the registration form. Additional Fee* Maximum of 72 Players

Tuesday, July 10

Pickle Ball Tournament   3:30pm-5:30pm

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, like a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat like tennis, with several modifications. Pickleball was invented in the mid-1960s as a children’s backyard pastime but has become one of America’s most popular growing sports among all ages. Following the tournament, join us for light refreshments!
Proper tennis/pickleball attire of any color is suggested (shirts are required at all times).

  • Proper tennis/pickleball shoes are required. Dark-soled, running or hiking shoes are not allowed and may cause injury.
