CFA Undertakes Industry Survey on Cold Weather Practices

ACI Committee 306 and the Concrete Foundations Association are committed to improving the conditions for directing and implementing state-of-the-art technology for better performance in cold weather concreting.  The combination of professional contractor experience and this technology is proving the production of quality concrete at a broad range of placement and curing temperatures and conditions.

A survey has been created to gather information of present practice and guidance for the provisions and applications of cold weather concreting.  Access this survey by visiting or by visiting CFA’s booth #4341 at World of Concrete.

“Our interest is to continue redefining the ideas associated with cold weather performance of concrete and the prediction of protection needs,” states Dennis Purinton, CFA member and president of Purinton Builders in East Granby, CT.  Dennis has led the most recent research efforts for cold weather performance looking at new wall behaviors and slabs. “While we continue to research the impact our decisions for mix design, production and placement conditions and protection measures have on our concrete elements, we also need to assess the information being used for guidance and assure that the industry has ways to cost-effectively and efficiently implement practical measures.”

Survey participants to the CFA booth at WOC will be entered into a drawing for a free iPad mini donated by Wacker Neuson Production America LLC and a commemorative CFA ball cap while supplies last.
