RC3 2016 Ken Fone - Jack Weber Scholarship Winners and Annual Dinner Presentation
The Reinforced Concrete Construction Committee (RC3) held its 2016 Annual Dinner Presentation and Scholarship Awards Banquet on Wednesday, October 26th, at the Revere Hotel/Boston Common.
Dinner Presentation. This year's speaker was Andreas Tselebidis. Andreas is the Director of Concrete Technology & Solutions in the Admixture Systems Division of BASF Chemicals. He has authored over 30 technical papers in various concrete industry journals and has 9 patents on concrete technology. He has been integral with the implementation of sustainable concrete solutions on signature projects nationally and worldwide, including 432 Park Avenue and the World Trade Center Towers in New York. In 2015, he was selected by ENR's editors as one of the Top 25 Newsmakers.
Andreas spoke on Green Sense Concrete which is an optimized mixture program in which recycled cementitious and non-cementitious materials are used in combination with specially formulated admixtures. The result is an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective concrete that meets, and often exceeds, performance targets. The positive impact of using Green Sense Concrete on sustainability criteria is quantified by certified eco-efficiency analysis or life-cycle analyzer tool.
Ken Fone - Jack Weber 2016 Scholarship Winners. In 2009, RC3 established a scholarship program in honor of Ken Fone and Jack Weber. The scholarship was established to support sophomore or junior civil engineering and construction management students who have demonstrated their ability to succeed and are interested in pursuing a career in the construction industry. Students must have a GPA of 2.75 or higher and write an essay on the value cast-in-place concrete has over steel, wood, and masonry construction.
The 2016 winners of a $1,000 scholarship pictured above are Phil Bucciero, Wentworth, Construction Management; Jennifer Lin, Wentworth, Construction Management; and, Kimberly Perrone, Northeastern, Civil Engineering.
