CFA/CHC Exhibit at Builder’s Show

The Concrete Foundations Association and the Concrete Homes Council exhibited at the International Builders Show in Orlando, Florida from January 11-14. The CFA/CHC booth was part of the concrete pavilion at the annual show. This year’s show was the biggest ever with over 105,000 attendees. Sixteen hundred exhibitors covered over 1.5 million square feet of exhibit space. In addition to the CFA/CHC booth, several CFA member companies also exhibited at the show.

The CHC unveiled its latest addition to the booth, a collapsing double-sided display which rolls up like a window shade for easy storing and shipping.

The CFA and CHC each sponsored a seminar at the event. Ed Sauter presented a seminar attended by approximately 175 people entitled “What’s Gray, Gets Hard, and Holds up Your House” (this was NAHB’s idea of a catchy title) which was a semi-technical presentation on concrete and foundations. It covered basics of concrete, the foundation construction process, and troubleshooting.

Rob Fallowfield of Outinord presented a seminar titled, “Production Systems for Concrete Housing”. This seminar, sponsored by the CHC, presented options for building above grade concrete housing with RCF’s (Removable Concrete Forms). Rob reported that it was well received.

The show will return to Orlando again in 2007 with show dates from February 7-10. While the CFA/CHC will not exhibit again we hope to present seminars on basements and above grade concrete. We are currently soliciting ideas for proposals and presenters for the 2007 show. If you have any ideas, get in touch with Ed Sauter at 319-896-6940 or by email at

Getting builders interested is just the start. We need interested contractors to join us and commit to increasing the network of available options!
