The ACI Greater Michigan Chapter, together with the ICRI Michigan Chapter, and our meeting sponsor, Barton Malow, invite you to join us on THURSDAY, November 5, 2015, for a look at the updated ACI 347 “Guide to Formed Concrete Services”.  ACI Committee guides reference formed surfaces on deviation from plane but don’t provide clarity on formed surface textures.  Recently, ACI 347.3R-13 “Guide to Formed Concrete Surfaces” and a new ACI 347R-14 “Guide to Formwork for Concrete” were released for publication.  Our speaker, Rolf Spahr, will discuss some of the history behind these documents and a survey of the new Guide. The meeting will then be opened up for general discussion.

Please note the deviation from our normal day for this meeting, the meeting will be on THURSDAY, November 5, 2015.

Speaker: Rolf Spahr has a degree in Construction Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Stuttgart, Germany.  Since graduating in 1978, he has worked in the formwork and shoring business both  in Germany, and international (Europe, Middle-East, North Africa, North America).  Rolf has the MEVA Sales Director Germany and has set up MEVA operations in the USA.  He is a member of ACI Committees 347, 301 and 303, and participates in an organization for “Quality and Safety in Formwork Technology”, GSV Europe.
