“The seminar I attended on 4/30/2019 was an excellent experience. Thanks to the speakers I now have a deeper understanding on several fronts and the plant tour was fantastic – nothing can approach actual direct contact in terms of understanding and lasting impact. I want to thank Hugh Scott personally and Shea Concrete for graciously offering this seminar free of charge to any and all. Well done! I hope to attend more in the future”
Richard Littlefield (Senior Civil Engineer)
"I would like to thank the Shea staff for putting on a great seminar with good presenters and valuable technical information provided on various topics. The plant tour with Greg was interesting and good to see the casting process from start to finished product. Lunch was delicious and thanks to Hugh as well for coordinating the event!"
Christian Frey (Northstar Industries)
"I just wanted to take a second to say thanks for a great and informative seminar last week. Your hospitality and hard work into getting the seminar put together is greatly appreciated. The seminar was great to refresh and also do a deeper dive on a lot of precast basic and advanced principles. You can certainly never know enough and the Shea seminar helped provide that. Thanks again! It was a great day of education topped off with a very impressive plant tour."
Jeff Macomber (J&R Precast Inc.)
"I found this seminar extremely helpful. With land so tight in New England, there is always a need for retaining walls. ReCon and Shea Concrete provide a great solution for gravity walls that can be installed as stand-alone systems over twenty feet in height with no fabric or grid reinforcement needed. Also, I was grateful for the tour of Shea’s facility. It is very impressive!"
Deb Colbert, P.E. (Senior Project Manager – Hancock Associates)
"Everyone always makes it a point to call in when they have a complaint, but it’s not often enough that compliments are given. I just wanted to say that it’s a pleasure to work with Mark from Shea Concrete Products. He’s professional, shows up when he’s supposed to, and does a great job with no complaining, even during crappy weather. Also, while this is personal preference, it’s great that he doesn’t light up a cigarette as soon as he gets out of the truck. I’m not sure when it became acceptable to smoke in the 'office' (whether the office is outside or not), but that’s one of those things I consider unprofessional, and I’m glad Mark doesn’t do it"
Erin Kirchner, R.S. (Administrator – Essex (MA) Board of Health)
"Just a quick note to personally thank you for the excellent tour of your facilities along Route 4 on November 8th. I thought the tour was well-organized and very informative to both the students and me! The students just completed their on-site wastewater disposal design projects and just about all specified Shea Concrete septic tanks and D-boxes! Please thank others who were involved in facilitating an outstanding educational experience"
Professor M. Robin Collins, Ph.D., P.E., Director - Water Treatment Technology Assistance Center (University of New Hampshire Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering)
"I am a Health Agent and wanted to see the precast concrete operation to better understand the elements of septic system components and application. I expected several hours of sales pitch and "buy our product" presentations. Couldn't be further from the truth. I received professional presentations and a plant tour that gave me a lot of insight into what goes into quality precast concrete products as well as Q&A sessions about associated septic products with industry professionals. To top it all off a great and delicious lunch was provided. Good job! Thanks for a great day and I look forward to future seminars."
Bryan Besso (Hopkinton, MA Health Agent)
"I have been to several Shea Concrete seminars. The presenters are very knowledgeable, informative, detailed and to the point. Shea is a group of down to earth people. It is a pleasure to work with them and reap the benefits of their seminars."
Jay Kaknes, P.E – Northeast Shoring Installation
"I would like to thank Shea Concrete sincerely. I had tried contacting several precast bulkhead companies and encountered rude secretaries, unanswered emails and unreturned voicemails. Shea showed me that they care about all their customers including the new ones, and the quickness we were able to get our new bulkhead installed was surprising and impressive. Thank you very much, I will always recommend Shea and certainly contact you again for any further precast needs in the future."
