Concrete-Free Slab On Grade Foundations

Concrete-Free Slab On Grade Foundations

Concrete is the world's second most used material behind water and this material alone accounts for almost 8% of the entire world’s GHG emissions. This is even before considering the impacts the raw materials such as sand have to ecosystems around the world. There are ample reasons to reduce the amount of concrete used in our buildings to reduce the impact the built environment has on climate change.

Join Josh Salinger, founder and principal of Birdsmouth Design, as he explains how to design and construct a high performance floating plywood slab on grade assembly successfully. His presentation will explain the science behind why this works, how it meets code and practical methods of incorporating this into your projects.

Join us on April 27th for in-depth discussion followed by a live Q+A session.
