Shea Concrete Products is excited to announce our 10th seminar as part of the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) “Precast Days” initiative that will take place within our headquarters facility in Amesbury, MA.  The NPCA and Shea Concrete Products are presenting “Precast Days” as a unique educational opportunity to provide students, specifiers, engineers and contractors with an up-close experience at a New England-based precast concrete plant.  NPCA Certified precast concrete plants are opening their doors to explain the precast manufacturing process and demonstrate the equipment, technology and engineering expertise that goes into making resilient precast concrete products.  While learning from an exciting line-up of technical presentations, all attendees will earn 5-PDHs, be provided with lunch, have an excellent opportunity to network with other local civil engineers/contractors/specifiers, and be provided with a “hard-hat” tour of our precast concrete manufacturing facility adjacent to the headquarters facility.  There is no cost to attend this engineering seminar; seating is limited and on a first come basis!
